LEE Johnson has confirmed offers have been received for star defender James Tarkowski, but Johnson is still hopeful the club can fend them off.
Burnley are reported to be testing the water with a £250,000 bid, including a 10-per-cent sell-on clause.
And Athletic’s League One rivals Brentford are said to be ready to offer £300,000, with a potential extra £100,000 in add-ons for the 21-year-old.
Johnson said there are other clubs interested too: “There is no denying interest in James Tarkowski, as there is in a couple of our players. We have received a couple of bids for Tarkowski and some very strong interest as well. We will just have to see. Hopefully we won’t lose him.”
