We live in a world where multiple Premier League clubs are set to compete for £20million Ben Mee

English centre-back will head into next campaign with just a year left on his current contract which may force boss Sean Dyche to cash in

Follow us as we take a tour of the Ben Mee fan club’s headquarters.

This season, nearly every club outside the top six has been dragged into the relegation scrap at some point

Not Burnley.

Sean Dyche’s troops have occupied 7th spot for the majority of the campaign and while Ashley Barnes’ industry got him linked to Chelsea, it’s the Clarets’ defence who have won the most admirers.

James Tarkowski’s form has earned him an England call-up along but many Burnley fans have been left asking, what about Mee?

Ben Mee has spent the season throwing himself in front of anything and must not have been far away from an international call-up himself.

However, Burnley may be forced to listen to offers for their 28-year-old vice-captain with Mee stalling on a new deal.

The former Man City youth is will enter the final year of his deal this summer and Dyche is concerned about the prospect of losing Mee for free with several Premier League clubs motioning the situation.

The likes of Spurs and Arsenal have their eyes on a new centre-back for next season.

Dyche could replace Mee with West Brom’s Craig Dawson — a transfers that sounds so inevitable it feels like it’s already happened.

Burnley are thought to be one of the first in the queue to land the £10m-rated Baggies defender once West Brom’s relegation is confirmed.

Dyche tried to sign Dawson after selling Michael Keane to Everton in August, but Albion refused to do business.

Second time’s the charm?
