Clarets looking at Hammill

Last updated : 09 July 2008 By Tony Scholes
Hammill spent a season on loan with Southampton in 2007/08 and had previously been on loan to Dunferrmline Athletic. He was in the team that won the FA Youth Cup two years ago and beat Burnley on the way to the final.

Last season he played in 25 league games for Southampton but just 12 of them were starts with 13 other appearances from the bench. He didn't play in either of their games against the Clarets.

He'd previously made 13 league appearances for Dunfermline but is still to make a first team debut for Liverpool.

The player has a long term future at Anfield but is looking to get out on loan to get in some first team football and gain experience.
