Burnley are in talks with Sheffield United striker Billy Sharp about a move to Turf Moor, skysports.com understands.
Sharp's future at United has been the subject of speculation for some time with the player spending all last season on loan at Doncaster.
Doncaster have expressed an interest in making Sharp's move permanent, but Burnley are hoping to beat their Championship rivals to the 24-year-old's signature.
Burnley are believed to have had a bid accepted for the former Scunthorpe man and Sharp is now locked in talks with the Clarets.
Turf Moor boss Brian Laws is keen to bolster his attacking options after losing Steven Fletcher to Wolves and sees Sharp, who he worked with during his time in charge of Scunthorpe, as a key addition to his rebuilding plans for next season.
