Hamilton have confirmed they are in talks with Burnley over a possible move to the English Premier League for Brian Easton.
The left-back has caught the eye over the past couple of seasons courtesy of a series of mature performances, with Burnley having lodged an offer for his services on Wednesday.
It is thought the Clarets' bid of £300,000 plus appearance-based incentives fell short of Hamilton's valuation.
Accies chairman Ronnie McDonald has confirmed the club are in talks with their English counterparts and that negotiations are ongoing.
"We have opened discussions with Burnley, they will remain confidential but are ongoing," he told the Daily Record.
