Burnley's injury crisis could force them to make a move for West Ham United striker Junior Stanislas, according to The Mirror.

The local boy, who has five Hammers goals to his name has made just one appearances for the club this season, and with the likes of Carlton Cole and John Carew in the side, could see his opportunities limited.

And following injuries to Danny Ings, who recently signed from Bournemouth, and Martin Paterson, manager Eddie Howe is looking at another young gun to improve his promotion chasing side, with West Ham still searching for another forward.


Stanislas is set to continue the exits from Upton Park, following the likes of Matthew Upson and Demba Ba, with Scott Parker also expected to leave West Ham.

Wes Ham have begun life in the Npower Championship in indifferent form, with a recent draw with Leeds United highlighting the club's problems, despite the appointment of manager Sam Allardyce.
