Burnley set to battle Arsenal for highly-rated Championship starlet

Burnley set to battle Arsenal for highly-rated Championship starlet, Collins, 19, joined Stoke City’s youth academy in 2015 after making the switch from Cherry Orchard FC.

Since the young Irishman’s arrival at Stoke City, Collins has gone on to feature in 44 matches in all competitions for the club’s senior first-team.

The talented youngster who can play on either side of a centre-back pairing has quickly become one of the Championship’s most highly-rated defenders.

According to a recent report from The Sun both the Gunners and the Clarets are keen on the 19-year-old and could go head-to-head to secure his services next summer.
