FC Twente manager Joseph Oosting has admitted he has spoken to Burnley’s Wout Weghorst via text, as rumours about a transfer this summer continue.

The FC Twente manager has been speaking about the Burnley man to Voetbal International after his side returned to training ahead of the new season.

Weghorst has been linked with a move to Twente this summer as he looks to leave Burnley on a permanent basis.

Several reports have credited the Dutch side with an interest and even claimed that Weghorst is keen on the move, although Ajax have now entered the mix and complicated matters for their counterparts.

Indeed, a report yesterday claimed that Ajax were in advanced talks with the Burnley man, suggesting they had beaten competition from Twente for his signature this summer.

Whether that is the case is up for debate, particularly as Weghorst is currently at Euro 2024 with the Netherlands, where he was recently the hero in their opening win over Poland.

His focus is very much on that tournament for the time being, which would suggest any transfer away from Burnley is not imminent.

Oosting certainly isn’t concerned with the rumours about Ajax, insisting he’s spoken to Weghorst recently.

“These are rumours. I don’t know what to believe about that. I was in contact with Wout this morning. He sent me a text to wish me luck with the first training,” he said.

“I don’t dare say which way it will go. It’s Burnley’s turn. Wout is under contract there and I don’t assume they will just let him go.

“We want to have all positions double occupied. Especially now that we are entering Europe and will be playing many international matches. You need a good selection for that, which can play in Europe during the week and in the Eredivisie at the weekend.”
