I'd be surprised if Man U were not interested - they need a cultured defender to make McGuire look better than average.

Did he look totally disinterested when he threw himself at the ball on the line in the last minute to prevent Newcastle’s third?
After he got absolutely roasted 1v1 again, he got outmuscled by ASM.

he was doing his job. I'm observing that he's not enjoying playing much at the moment, whether thats looking disinterested or whatever I don't know, but in seasons prior to this one - he's been immense and playing with the "Legs-Hearts-Mind" motto in full view, but this season he's not appeared to do so.

Tarky is no England international. In fact he is already playing at least one level higher than he should be. He looks totally disinterested. As soon as we are safe (one more win)? let’s get him benched and look for any suitors.
Christ on a bike!

James Tarkowski IS an England international, and has the caps to prove this. He is a quality Premier League footballer, he could and likely will play for in a team higher up the league to us, as evidenced by West Ham and Leicester's interest last summer.

He is a very good defender for Burnley Football Club. Time will tell if he can apply his skill set to a different setup with a more expansive style. But if and when leaves, it will be with mine and other thanks for serving BFC well.

Hes Regressed quite Noticeably.
He is in and out for sure, it's almost like his disappointment of not getting the move has got to him (unintentionally, just natural I guess) and has affected some of his decisions. Hopefully he'll give us enough to get us over the line this season and then if he gets his move good luck to him

I think there's plenty of PL clubs would take him at £25-£30 million

If we get £25-£30m we'll be doing well considering he's entering the final year of his contract, if and when he goes he'll go with my blessing, he's proven himself to be a great servant to BFC, and for those who don't think he's PL material he's played over 150 games at this level for Burnley, so he must be showing something to SD and the coaches, now whether he can make the transition to a bigger club and a different style time will tell, but Michael Keane certainly showed that we can produce players who can make the step up.

Superb player for us.

You don’t keep a player against their wishes, and you don’t let a player walk for free that you can get good money for to reinvest. That is the definition of stupidity.

We no doubt have a tidy reputation for developing players. How many have we had play for England in recent seasons? 5/6? That’s our UP, and it should be a real bargaining chip when we chase potential signings.

If and when he does go, he’ll be fondly remembered, and who can blame him for one last payday in what is a short career.

Given that we only received a 30m bid last summer with two years left on his contract when his stock was at his highest. We will be lucky to get 15-20m for him now.

No doubting he's a terrific player, but he has dropped off this season. Just can't see him getting the move he wanted, in footballing terms. Ive no doubt there are better and younger CH to be had for less money in Europe.

Contrary to most it seems, I do not think Tarks has enjoyed the same level of sustained performance as in previous seasons. Nor do not think there will be the same clamour for his signature that there seemed to be previously for him come summer. I expect Tarks to be here next season as a result, either signing a new deal or leaving for free to stimulate interest from those unwilling to meet our valuation

Do keep up JBG signed an extension a few months ago, Brady can go though he's a liability these days.

Why are they mental? I disagree with most of them, but to call someone strange because they do not share you opinion is... well, strange. Either you are the oracle of football, think your intellect is superior or at best intolerant of others stating their opinion. Your’s is Not the sort of comment designed to engage question why or interrogate others position. So I suspect it is not option 2.

I'm not sure why people think Leicester and West Ham won't be interested anymore? He'll be going cheap and with them both likely to be playing in Europe there's plenty of games to be played.

Exactly, and it would be a move purely for a pay rise.
He would be a squad member as opposed to a nailed-on starter. Would that help his international prospects? ;)

Think people are just more of the opinion that clubs like Leicester and West Ham can sign defenders of similar quality for less wages and fee.
I mean look at last summer, Burnley turned down 30m for Tarks. Leicester sign Fofana for approx 30m. Everton sign Godfrey for approx 30m. West Ham sign Dawson for 3m.

All arguably better than Tarks.

I think Tarks has missed his chance, I just don’t see what team is going to spend between 15-20m on a fee and then what 100k a week on him. All the mid table teams have really good CBS not sure who is spending that kind of money on a bench player.

His stock peaked last year and only Leicester and West Ham appeared to have any kind of interest. Leicester's reported max bid was £25m?

I think we’d do very well to get £15M this summer.

If we do get an offer circa £15M or above then we need to take it. And with the £8M for Gibson, we have the basis of a kitty to work with. Collins from Stoke would be a start.

I am hopeful that both SD and Tarks can be tied down for longer contracts this Summer-more so than in the Summer. I hope that Tarks looks at Hendrick's plight. He rarely now starts at Newcastle. Yes Tarks could move on, but seem to recall he favours the North West, and personally I cant see any of the N W PL sides wanting him, other than as a squad player.I believe with our form this year and his contract reducing, his worth has dropped.

He is still our king pin and can be a big fish in a small pond. If ALK are able to prove we have funds to bring in new and younger faces in Summer then that could ensure both these two key guys get new contracts

No excuses when the window opens. We have known our requirements for the past 3 windows

One of our best players that’s for sure. JT is an absolute rock.
Personally I think he should play in midfield.
He would outmuscle most and he can take on players and we have seen some useful runs past opposition players.

Next Sunday will be the perfect opportunity for JT to put himself in the window for the summer transfer market

Hope they play Cavani up front as his guile and knowledge of the game will test JT and BM. Tarks has made some individual mistakes in the last couple of games and, as a central defender, they are scrutinised more than most

There will be teams interested next summer and if they feel they seriously need JT for the following season they will be prepared to pay decent money

Based on the alleged statement last summer he clearly wants to have a crack at playing for a bigger club with european competition and nobody could argue with that

I think he should look at Keanes struggles with Everton. Keane was awesome for us but it's a very different story when you're in a more attacking team. Compared to Keane, Tarkowski also has no pace which will hinder him playing for sides that like to attack with a high line.

A team like Leicester that sit back and counter would suit him more. I actually don't think he'll be good enough to play for England ahead of Maguire or Stones. He may make a sub but even then Southgate is going to prefer younger players ahead of him.

I tend to think that if Tarkowski leaves, he will look back on his career and think that his best football was played at Burnley.
