Burnley are eyeing up a move for another West Ham United striker, this time Junior Stanislas is on Clarets boss Eddie Howe's radar according to skysports.com.

Howe is looking to increase his attacking options at Turf Moor before the close of the transfer window in a bid to fire the club back into contention for promotion to the Barclays Premier League.

Having already completed a move for former Hammers star Zavon Hines, the Burnley boss is planning to return to Upton Park to try and negotiate a deal for Stanislas - who scored for West Ham in last night's 2-1 Carling Cup defeat at the hands of Aldershot Town.

Since his arrival in east London, Sam Allardyce has added John Carew to his attacking ranks, causing the promising Stanislas to fall further down the pecking order.


The 21-year-old may be tempted by the offer of more regular first-team football than he is likely to get at West Ham, as the promotion hopefuls look to steer their way back to the top-flight at the first time of asking.
