West Ham United are reportedly considering an offer for Burnley goalkeeper Tom Heaton, who now finds himself as second choice at Turf Moor.

Burnley goalkeeper Tom Heaton has reportedly emerged as a potential transfer target for West Ham United.

For much of his five-year stay at Turf Moor, Heaton has been regarded as first choice with 178 appearances being made in all competitions, but a shoulder injury at the start of this campaign has resulted in the 32-year-old now acting as deputy to Nick Pope.

Manager Sean Dyche has previously spoken highly of Heaton - who still has just over two years remaining on his contract - but according to The Sun, West Ham are showing an interest in the stopper.

Joe Hart is expected to return to Manchester City in the summer while the future of Adrian remains uncertain, leading to the Hammers to look for alternative options ahead of next season.

The report suggests that West Ham could look to tempt Burnley with an offer in the region of £10m in the coming weeks.
