Chelsea have also been showing an interest but it looks as though Turf Moor could be the young player’s first choice. He said of the opportunity,
"It’s a good chance for me and I’m looking forward to it. It will be a good experience to see how things go at other clubs.
"So I’ll train for a week and maybe play a few games in their reserves or under 17s.
"I’m just going there on my own – there are no team mates going and hopefully it will be third time lucky after Motherwell went into administration and then last year’s disappointment with Burnley.
"I suppose it is a bit unusual to get a trial at Burnley without playing any first team games but anyway it is a good chance for me and I hope something comes out of it."
Binnie is currently on a sports studies course at Langside College in Glasgow but has been given a week off from his studies to allow him to be at Burnley for this trial.
