WILL Burn­ley prise Alan Judge from the clutches of Brent­ford? Who knows, but it’s about time some­body paid the winger a bit of at­ten­tion.

Sea­son af­ter sea­son, the Ir­ish­man has stats to die for: as­sists, key passes and, this term, goals too. The man is a cre­ative ma­chine.

But, per­haps due to his lack of vis­i­ble dy­namism, he rarely gets the credit he de­serves. Now, at 27, he is a tar­get for both the Clarets and big-spend­ing Sh­effield Wed­nes­day.

The Bees are hold­ing out for £8m. Judge is a qual­ity player. But, with the Euros round the cor­ner and the chance to show­case his tal­ents, I would be sur­prised if Judge wasn’t gone by the end of Jan­uary.
