Premier League club Burnley are in a spot of bother after their dependable goalkeeper Tom Heaton turned down their offer of a new contract.
This is according to the report from The Sun which revealed that both parties (Burnley and Tom Heaton) have been in new contract talks for a while.
It was further revealed that new contract talks have stalled, thus putting the long-term future of Tom Heaton at Burnley in serious doubt.
Tom Heaton has been a top performer for the Clarets since he joined them from Manchester United six years ago.
The 33-year-old has been attracting the interest of the other Premier League clubs and Burnley might need to sell him this summer to avoid losing him for free next summer.
Tom Heaton has one year left on his current deal with the Clarets and the club must make a decision if he fails to sign a new contract.
The ex-Manchester United shot stopper was in good form for Burnley towards the end of the season after recovering from a shoulder injury that kept him out of action for almost a year.
The injury forced him to miss the World Cup last summer for the England national team but he has since regained his place in the Three Lions squad.
Tom Heaton was part of the England team that finished third at the just concluded UEFA Nations League finals.
