Millwall have rejected four bids from Premier League new boys Burnley for Zian Flemming.
We reported last month that any deal for the 24-year-old Dutchman would significantly break their record outgoing, which is the £8million that Middlesbrough paid for George Saville in January 2019.
Flemming reported back for pre-season training last week.
The Amsterdam-born number 10 scored 15 goals in a highly impressive first campaign in English football.
The South London Press asked Millwall manager Gary Rowett on Wednesday about Burnley’s attempts to land Flemming. He said: “He is a very good player, it doesn’t surprise me there is interest from the Premier League.”
Flemming cost £1.7m when he signed last summer from Fortuna Sittard and he has no release clause in his Den deal.
Burnley have already signed Jordan Beyer for a fee of around £13m from Borussia Monchengladbach and paid in the region of £7m for West Brom defender Dara O’Shea.
