By Dominic Toner
Burnley have made submitted a bid for Hull midfielder Robert Snodgrass which could blow West Ham out of the water, according to a report.
The Mail claim that Premier League side Burnley have tabled a £7.5million offer for the 29-year-old as manager Sean Dyche wants to add a winger to his squad.
It is reported that the Clarets have turned their attention to Snodgrass after failing to agree terms for Norwich ace Robbie Brady, but that could seriously damage West Ham’s pursuit of the midfielder.
Sky Sports reported on Wednesday that the Hammers had a £6million bid rejected by Hull for the Scotland international, which followed up previous rejected attempts of £3million and £5million.
Slaven Bilic is looking to add some firepower to his squad in January as they could lose playmaker Dimitri Payet.

Payet has asked to leave the London Stadium and wants to move back to his former club Marseille in France.
Snodgrass has been the standout player this season for relegation-threatened Hull.
The right winger has made 24 appearances across all competitions, scoring nine goals and four assists.
Football Insider verdict:
West Ham should return with a fourth bid for Snodgrass and can’t allow Burnley to beat them to his signature. The 29-year-old has been in sensational form this season and Bilic must fill the gap that Payet is likely to leave behind. The Hammers are looking to establish themselves as a top side in the Premier League and can’t be beaten by Burnley to transfer targets. They should ensure Snodgrass moves to London and submit an improve bid for him. Snodgrass is a fantastic set-piece specialist and also chips in with vital goals from midfield, something that the Hammers could do with.
