Burnley look all set to deepen the crisis at Portsmouth by snapping up their only goalkeeper, a 17-year-old Australian who was on trial at Fratton Park for much of last season.
Pompey sold Stephen Henderson and released their only two goalkeepers at the end of last season and were hoping to complete the signing of Daniel Nizic, previously with Sydney to work alongside a Premier League goalkeeper they intend to bring in on loan.
However, they are still awaiting Football League permission to land the loan goalkeeper and the media sources down there are reporting that Nizic, who was there for the majority of the 2011/12 season without being able to play competitively for any of their teams, has opted instead to sign for Burnley.
