Promising youngster set for Burnley trial despite Celtic interest

Thomas Robert looks set to join Burnley on a trial basis despite links with Celtic. The 20-year-old spent a period at Lennoxtown but no deal was forthcoming and now the Frenchman that made 26 appearances for Airdrie last season will be attempting to win a deal at Turf Moor.

According to the Daily Record, Robert has been invited by Sean Dyche’s side as the Premier League outfit weigh up whether or not to offer him a deal. The winger has just a year remaining on his deal and Airdrie will be keen to offload him this summer as to realise some financial gain after signing the player in a major coup last summer.

The Airdrie starlet spent two weeks on loan at Celtic earlier and despite positive discussions with Nicky Hammond, no deal was sanctioned as there was no new management structure is in place after Neil Lennon’s departure. Robert has been impressive for Airdrie since joining from Montpellier last summer. Robert, the son of ex-Newcastle star Laurent Robert, bizarrely chose to join the League 1 side despite interest from across Europe.
