Skysports.com understands Burnley are lining up a move for Preston winger Ross Wallace.
Burnley have switched their attentions to Wallace after being frustrated in their attempts to sign Hearts wide-man Andrew Driver.
Clarets boss Brian Laws has money to spend following Steven Fletcher's move to Wolves and he is ready to make a bid for Wallace.
The former Celtic and Sunderland man has impressed at Preston since arriving initially on loan in 2008 before signing on a permanent basis a year later.
Preston boss Darren Ferguson is reluctant to lose the 25-year-old, but could cash-in on the player to raise funds for his own transfer plans.
Wallace could be Burnley's third signing of the summer following the captures of Chris Iwelumo and Dean Marney.
