Leicester City are reportedly interested in Burnley’s Charlie Taylor as potential Ben Chilwell replacement and Burnley boss Sean Dyche has hailed the rapid rise of the right-back.

According to The Times, the Foxes have already identified Taylor as a ready-made replacement, however, convincing Burnley to sell the one-time Leeds United starlet might be easier said than done.

Speaking about the £5 million star, Dyche said:

“I think he is a very good player. We want players to develop here regardless of contracts but when they sign long term contracts that is a view of them continuing their growth and he is one that is showing strong signs of that as he did last season.

“I have been very impressed with his performances and he is still learning. He is a very strong player physically and I think he is improving.”

Brendan Rodgers’ side are back to action on Saturday as they are set to face Watford at Vicarage Road.
