Burnley are looking to sign right-back Lorenz Assignon from Rennes.

The Clarets are leaving it late and have less than 12 hours to complete a deal for the 23-year-old Frenchman.

Assignon had been linked with a move to Galatasaray but it seems like the Turkish giants will sign Serge Aurier from Nottingham Forest instead.

It may allow Championship side Leeds United to make a move for Burnley full-back Connor Roberts.
