Collins, 20 missed a chunk of the second half of the campaign with injury but Burnley are convinced he is ready to go into Sean Dyche’s side.

The powerful defender can play centre-half or right back and could be needed if James Tarkowski is sold this summer.

Yet for the past year the 6ft 4ins starlet has also been tracked by Premier League ‘Big Six’ clubs.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United first eyed Collins two seasons ago after he made his first-team debut aged only 17.

And German club Werder Bremen reportedly asked Stoke about Collins two summers ago.

In the end, though, Collins signed a new deal with the Potters until 2024.
