Once seen as a potential next big thing, Matej Vydra never fully lived up to the hype that surrounded his early years in England.
Spells with Club Brugge, Watford, Udinese, West Brom, Reading, Derby and now Burnley never really gave him the stability needed to fully develop, and he now finds himself on the periphery of Sean Dyche’s ongoing project at Turf Moor.
The forward has only made nine appearances in the league this season, most of which have come from the bench, and he has yet to contribute a goal or an assist during them.
That’s why, according to Sky Germany, the Premier League side are happy to see him go, with Union Berlin knocking at their door for a loan.
Sky sources: Union Berlin has made an offer for Matej Vydra from @BurnleyOfficial today. They want him on loan, Burnley would rather sell him. Player would like to go the Bundesliga to get more minutes. No second offer yet #TransferUpdate @fcunion pic.twitter.com/RDodzrpY1J

The news comes from their reporter Max Bielefeld on Twitter, who explained the Bundesliga side ‘have made an offer’ for the Burnley player, but Sean Dyche and co. ‘would rather sell him’.
It’s then added that Vydra himself would like to move to Germany in order to ‘get more minutes’ and Union Berlin have not made a second offer as things stand.
One to keep an eye on.
