Burnley manager Brian Laws wants to have another look at Bohemians' promising striker Paddy Madden in the New Year.
The 20-year-old recently completed a short spell with the Championship club and he made a favourable impression with the club's boss.
Laws knows all about the youngster and his goalscoring record and he is now hoping the Irish starlet will return next month.
"There have been a lot of good players coming out of Ireland and he's a player we've known about for a while. He's got a good goalscoring record," Laws told Clarets Player.
"We have had a good look at him for a couple of days. We want to keep monitoring him and hopefully try and bring him back in January when we will probably get a game of some description, possibly in the reserves.
"I think that would be the best test for him to see how he is but he certainly didn't look out of place. He's a young player. I'm not so sure he's ready yet but he might be one for the future."
