Werder Bremen goalkeeper Jiri Pavlenka has hinted he would be interested in a bid from Burnley, should they come calling again.

The Clarets were keen on the Czech Republic goalkeeper in the summer, making a bid for his services but ultimately being turned down.

He elected to reject the offer from Burnley and stay with the German side, despite their relegation to the 2.Bundesliga.

Things have not been going well for him so far this season, though, with injuries meaning he’s managed just four appearances in the league to date.

He’s yet to keep a clean sheet in any of those games and has conceded five goals in the process, which is hardly a great situation.

With his contract expiring in the summer, the 29-year-old is set to have talks about his future at the club come January, and he admits he could now be tempted away if someone like Burnley comes knocking again.

“I don’t know if I’ll stay or leave in the summer or even already in the winter,” he told BILD.

“Honestly, I can’t imagine playing in the second division for another year.

“We were very happy in Bremen; now it’s a bit more difficult. Bremen is a great city with great fans. But unfortunately, the situation is not easy because of the relegation.”
