After suffering relegation with Burnley, Bafana Bafana striker Lyle Foster could be set to stay in the English Premier League.

After just one season back in the big time, Foster could not prevent Burnley from suffering from the drop. 

In what was a rather stop-start season for Foster, was one of the shining lights in the early stages of Burnley’s campaign. He was a regular contributor to the goal scoring column before requesting a break from the game. For this, he cited mental health issues. He was then sidelined for a while by former manager Vincent Kompany. He subsequently pulled himself out of possible selection for Bafana Bafana’s Afcon squad. 

Four inquired about Foster

In what caused even more of a stir and debate, Foster continued playing for Burnley and scoring. That was probably in a view to keep marketing himself should the side get relegated. Now according to Soccer-Laduma, had four English Premier League sides inquiring about his services in the January transfer window. 

“Back in January, four Premier League clubs were believed to have shown interest in Burnley forward Lyle Foster. With the striker’s club officially relegated from the Premier League, Soccer Laduma spoke to insiders around which of these four clubs could still be in for the Bafana Bafana star. The likes of Brentford, Newcastle, Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest are all understood to have enquired about Foster in January. This is after the 23-year-old experienced a rich vein of form in which he scored four goals before the turn of the year, showing that he has the capacity to compete – and succeed in the toughest league in the world.

Looking to ditch Burnley for Premier League stay?

Insiders have already confirmed that Foster is keen on remaining in the Premier League and at this stage, is unlikely to follow Kompany to Germany but the next few weeks will be crucial for the forward with regards to his future and where he plays his football next season.” Wrote the publication. 

It now remains to be seen if Foster can get his English Premier League wish, or go down with Burnley.
