Sky Sports understands Burnley have accepted a bid in the region of £7million from Southampton for striker Jay Rodriguez.

Twelve months ago, Nigel Adkins' Premier League newcomers had an offer rejected for the 22-year-old but are now understood to have come closest to matching the Clarets' £8million valuation.

Rodriguez enjoyed a blistering campaign last term, netting 21 goals despite having his contribution limited from early March by hip and groin problems.

The former England Under 21 international is currently out of the country and is yet to meet with Saints officials to discuss personal terms.

Should the deal go through, it is set to surpass the £6.5million recouped by Burnley for the sale of Scotland striker Steve Fletcher to Wolves two years ago.
