Sean Dyche has revealed Albion striker Ashley Barnes is undergoing a medical at Burnley.

The Clarets boss wants to add Barnes to his promotion-chasing squad.

News of the medical was confirmed by Burnley's official Twitter feed in the last few minutes.

A fee, which is not being disclosed, is reported to have been agreed by the clubs.

It is unclear whether the player has yet agreed personal terms.

Dyche said: "Something was agreed with the clubs and he's in having a medical. It's the one we've been working on for a while."

Leeds are also keen on the Seagulls striker, who is out of contract this summer.

The best teams and those most likely to be promoted are usually those that have a consistent team, if we have too many changes we may not have the momentum to carry is through to promotion. I appreciate that Barnes is out of contract in the summer but surely he is worth £750k if he helps us to promotion.. why sell players now, seems crazy if we don`t need the money.

Good luck Ashley wherever it is you end up. A better player than often given credit for and very much a team player. Scored his fair share of goals along the way and gave his all. Obviously there were some negatives about him as well and believe that this is a good price for someone who is out of contract in the summer. As long as we reinvest into continually improving the team the club will keep moving forward.

He doesn't seem too keen on signing a new contract and for £750,000 we could at the very least loan a top player . Why is Dyce so keen to let everyone know Burnley transfer dealings not very good business or is it Agents drumming up interest I.e Leeds?

Suprised at this as Barnes really does not fancy the move up north! At the end of the day Burnley, like BHA, are trying to get in the Premiership and need players to get them there and keep them there - Barnes is not a Premier League player and so he is not going to take them or us forward after this season therefore lets cash in now!!
BTW not sure what the Albion are offering for a new deal but I'm told by his pal that he is currently on £1,800- a week!!

Theh bid £750K last week and it was rejected. That suggezts tbeir revised bid probably hit the magic £1m barrier.

The club will have asked Barnes to again discuss the contract offer on tbe table and he has clearly declined.

Given his committment right up to last Saturday he can't be said to have not given his all so good luck and let's all move on.

yes maybe we could get a decent loan signing... but right at this point.. we have an unproven loan striker from Spurs and "that man from Argentina" with CMS (Feb/March) and Hoskins(season) out it leaves little striker cover for a team pushing promotion. But I suppose "In Tony/Oscar we trust!" let`s see how things look when the dust settle on 1st Feb and push on... UTA

Top post.

And as for comments "top price for someone out of contract in the Summer", the answer should've been for the Club not to let a contract run down so far anyway. Barnes would not be one of the higher paid players, nor would he have expected to be in a renewed contracts

Shrewd Burnley have got themselves a good player who scores key goals, but more importantly has a great work ethic and attitude about digging in wherever the team needs him.

Anyway, good luck to Barnes (but not when playing against us!) ... the quiet majority of fans, especially those who saw his efforts throughout at both Withdean & the Amex, appreciated his contribution to the Albion.

Well Barnesy I wish you all the best, thanks for what you have done for us over the years, I hope it all works out for you with Burnley. I guess at the end of the day it all came down to wages, after all, you were getting plenty of playing time, but I won't fault you for that.

Hi Rolivan, Happy New Year. How's Brittany ?
I suspect that the fee for Barnes is slightly higher than the £750,000 you quote since (according to the Argus) we turned down an offer of £750,000 from Burnley last week. We might receive somewhere around £800,000 - £850,000 for Barnes. Leeds entering the picture must help secure the extra few thousand pounds which can be used towards signing a replacement. Current rumours circulating are that Cardiff's Joe Mason is a potential target. So much for a quiet Transfer Window given that we have already recruited Obika on a 93 day Loan from Spurs.
Good luck to Barnes if he leaves he has served the club well. I think the club are prudent to sell now and receive a fee rather than get nothing in the Summer especially as Barnes hasn't rushed to sign the new contract we offered him at the start of the season.
It will be interesting to see what finally happens with Bridcutt. I wonder if any other clubs will join Sunderland in trying to sign him ? I would hope that we would hold out for at least £3 million. The £2 million bid is far to low and the club, rightly imo, rejected it.

Hi Ballantrae,happy New Year to you too had plenty of wind and rain but up plenty high enough not to have to worry . Further north west took a battering which is near to S.W England . It is all happening by the look of things all smoke and mirrors . The squad is gradually being strengthened so good things to look forward to.

At the end of the day Burnley, like BHA, are trying to get in the Premiership and need players to get them there and keep them there - Barnes is not a Premier League player and so he is not going to take them or us forward after this season therefore lets cash in now!! BTW not sure what the Albion are offering for a new deal but I'm told by his pal that he is currently on £1,800- a week!![/p][/quote]Can assure you your pals' information is way off beam.[/p][/quote]He is Barnes neighbour and knows him well! So what approx wage bracket do you put him in?![/p][/quote]And how many next-door neighbours discuss their weekly wage packet? Especially when it's apparently only 10% some of their colleagues?[/p][/quote]So you're saying other Albion players get £18,000 a week. Strewth! Claude Back

Good luck Ashley. We have to take the £750k or he signs the contract. We let someone go up the road for free, that cant happen again.Thought he would have gone to a big club though. Burnley wont go up and will finish outside the playoffs!

That's only a third of what Upson was on at West Ham.

I think I recall before Xmas that someone in the know--ho Ho--said Brighton were not prepared to pay ANY player more than 12k a week?? Can anyone confirm this?

Its a shame that Ash is going but hopefully that will be in the past soon because we need to move on a buy a new permanent striker that scores a lot of goals. Why don't we try and get Nahki Wells from Bradford or Adam Le Fondre.

I can't believe that someone actually gave you a thumbs down for your post..each to their own I guess.

I'm with you all the way however.. I think Wells might be a bit of a risk at this time but I'd very much like to see ale Fondre here... He's down on confidence at the moment but under his last manager he scored goals for fun and was a real handful... In the Premiership too.

Don't see it happening but I'd like too.

I cannot confirm, but I have heard Leeds have a similar restraint in place, said to be £10,000, at least that was the case 18 months ago, I doubt FFP would have allowed them to increase it that much.

Good luck AB
you let us down at the end of last season with that pointless sending off and subsequent ban but you learned from it and came back a much better player with a grown up attitude
Through our injury crisis you have led the line on your own, worked your socks off and you have earned respect for that alone plus the vital goals from time to time
Good deal for all concerned by the sound of it
