​Burnley have reportedly agreed to a deal in the region of £3m for Stoke forward Jon Walters - with a medical understood to be scheduled within the next 48 hours.


After seemingly being dismissed by the Potters following a bid significantly lower than Stoke's valuation, the Clarets have now returned with an improved bid which could see Walters leave Bet365 Stadium for Turf Moor. 


John Percy, Midlands reporter for the Telegraph has revealed via ​his Twitter account that Burnley have now had a bid accepted for the 33-year-old who is close to ending his seven-year spell with Stoke - pending the completion of a medical. 

After making just 13 starts and 10 substitute appearances for the Potters in the Premier League last season - scoring four goals and providing two assists - Walters has previously hinted that he is seeking more game time in the season leading up to the World Cup.


With Burnley seemingly prepared to offer the 33-year-old his wishes to play more regularly, the forward is understood to only be a few formalities away from saying farewell to the club who gave him his first taste of playing in England's top flight. 


After playing over 250 games for the Potters, Walter's now looks set to add Burnley to his long list of clubs he has taken to the field for, in a career which has spanned from the likes of Bolton, Wrexham, and Ipswich.

The Republic of Ireland international won't be walking into Turf Moor completely alone as will join three fellow international teammates at the club: Robbie Brady, Jeff Hendrick and Kevin Long.
