According to Sky, Stephens is in London finalising paperwork and completing a medical ahead of Burnley’s EFL clash at Millwall this evening.  

The initial fee for Stephens is believed to be £1m but could potentially rise to £2.5m. 

The double signing of Stephens and Wilson would represent the first piece of major business Burnley have done all summer with Will Norris currently the only arrival from Wolves.
