Manuel Benson: Burnley boss Vincent Kompany "expects" deal for Antwerp winger

Boss Vincent Kompany is confident Burnley will come to an agreement with Royal Antwerp for the signing of winger Manuel Benson.

Benson has already played three games this season for the Reds, and has 24 goals in 197 career games.
