He started his career at Manchester United and also played for Blackburn Rovers and Bournemouth.

The 29-year-old is a Norwegian international and can play forward or away and is due for a medical exam at Vicarage Road this weekend.

The Clarets remain on the lookout for new faces having already signed Nathan Collins for an initial £ 12million from Stoke City.

He joined his new teammates for the first time this week as they returned to preseason training.

Boss Sean Dyche has confirmed plans to add to his squad ahead of the new top-flight season which begins on Saturday August 14, saying the players are on the Clarets’ radar.

“The plan for the future is to add the group where we feel it is necessary and where we can,” said Dyche, who is pleased with Collins’ capture.

“I think it’s smaller steps, not huge steps, the finances still have to be balanced but this (Collins) will be a very good acquisition for the club in the future.

“There are other things on the radar that we look at, push and try to get them to cross the line.

“It’s not always about finances, it often is, but not always. Sometimes these are situations and the club want to sell.

“There is funding available, I can assure everyone, we are looking for players that we can watch and those who match us as a club.

“Nathan is definitely a player who can continue to develop in what we do here and can continue to develop as a player.”
