The South London Press understands that any deal for the Amsterdam-born player would significantly break the club’s outgoing transfer record – set when Middlesbrough signed George Saville for £8million in 2019.

The 24-year-old scored 15 goals for the Lions in his maiden season in English football following a club record £1.7m arrival from Fortuna Sittard.

Burnley are strengthening their squad after promotion to the Premier League.

But so far the Clarets have not come up with an acceptable offer to the Lions.

Flemming has no release clause in his Den deal.

Flemming won Millwall Supporters’ Club Player of the Year, beating Tom Bradshaw and George Saville to the accolade.

Dara O’Shea explains ‘no brainer’ decision to leave West Bromwich Albion in £7m Burnley transfer

Republic of Ireland international defender Dara O’Shea has left West Bromwich Albion to sign for Vincent Kompany’s Burnley in the Premier League in a £7m transfer

Dara O’Shea says it was a ‘huge, huge decision’ to leave West Bromwich Albion after eight years – but ultimately he couldn’t turn down a move to Burnley and the Premier League.

 

Dara O'Shea, who has been away with Republic of Ireland, is leaving West Bromwich Albion to sign for Burnley.

 

The 24-year-old defender has moved north in a £7million transfer – just south of an £8m release clause reported to be in his Albion contract – and he could make his debut against champions Manchester City in August. He had made just over 100 appearances after coming through the ranks at the Hawthorns and hopes that a difficult call will prove the right one for his career.

“It’s a tough one for me,” he said. “I’ve been at West Brom for eight years. I’ve been there since I was 16 and I’ve done really well for myself there. It was a huge, huge decision to make that move for me but one that’s best for me and my career.”

He added: “I kind of heard rumblings at the end of last season and it’s been ongoing now for a couple of weeks. Obviously when you’re in the moment it feels like for ages so I’m happy to be here now.

t’s a no brainer to come and want to work under someone like (Kompany). His career as a player was outstanding and someone I would have looked up to as well coming through. I’m really excited to be here and I want to learn a lot from him and the coaching staff.

“Burnley were the outstanding team last season and achieved exceptional things. That’s down to a lot that was going on on the training ground.”
