Arsenal's impressive talent has come back, with medical scheduled, but Edu may re-sign him one day ...

After the relegated Clarets agreed a deal for the central striker, Daniel Ballard is expected to join Burnley.

This summer, Arsenal will have to decide on a number of returning loan players.

William Saliba looks to stay in place, but Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Reiss Nelson, Pablo Mari, and Lucas Torreira''s futures are a little less clear.

After an impressive year with Millwall, Defender Ballard will return to Arsenal this summer.

Under Mikel Arteta, Ballard will not be a first-team player but is expected to leave the club.

Arsenals Daniel Ballard is Burnley-bound

Arsenal have agreed to sell Ballard to Burnley, according to the Athletic, but no fee has been disclosed at this time.

Ballard will not undergo a medical with Burnley, according to the agency, and the deal is on the verge of coming to an end.

Vincent Kompany, the new manager of Burnley who worked with Arteta at Manchester City, is understood to have been crucial in persuading Ballard to sign.

Ballard was wanted by other clubs, but he is now ready to make a move to Turf Moor, but he may not be leaving Arsenal forever.

Arsenal have entered a clause into the agreement, which means they may match any future bids for Ballard.

The 22-year-old has been rated very well at Arsenal and has even been branded a top player in his native Northern Ireland.

Ballard impressed in League One with Blackpool and then the Championship with Millwall, but it wasnt enough to advance him into Arsenal''s first-team position.

Ballard will replace James Tarkowski in Burnley, which he hopes will continue with.

As Tarkowski prepares to join Everton, Collins is attracting interest of his own in the Premier League.

Ballard should have plenty of first-team play time under an iconic centre back in Kompany, all while knowing that excellent displays might make him a return to Arsenal one day.
