Premier League-bound Burnley FC are eyeing a move for Bristol City loanee Han-Noah Massengo (21), according to a report from Foot Mercato.
Massengo, whose contract with the Robins is set to expire next month, joined relegation-battling Auxerre on loan during last winter’s transfer window. The Franco-Congolese midfielder played 13 league games with the Yonne side. Auxerre are 16th in the French top flight and will look to secure their status next Saturday against second-placed Lens. The Christophe Pélissier-led side has only a two-point lead on Nantes.
Massengo was discarded by Bristol City and sent on loan as he declined to sign a new contract with the Championship outfit. Foot Mercato reports that Burnley head coach Vincent Kompany is a keen admirer of the 21-year-old midfielder. The outlet adds that Massengo’s experience of English football, with more than 100 games played in the Championship, is highly regarded by the Clarets, who are seriously considering a move for the soon-to-be free agent. L’Équipe reported on Sunday that Troyes forward Mama Baldé (27) was also being targetted by the promoted side.
