Vincent Kompany is edging closer to taking charge at Burnley following their relegation from the Premier League.
The 36-year-old is the current manager of Anderlecht, however, a recent report from Lancs Live claims that the Clarets are hopeful that a move for the former Manchester City defender can be completed.
According to a Patreon from Alan Nixon, Kompany is eager to bring Craig Bellamy over to Turf Moor once his appointment is confirmed, with the Welshman expected to become the 36-year-old’s assistant.
The pair worked together at the Belgian club and could be reunited back in Lancashire, with the pair remaining good friends after their time at Anderlecht.
