Burnley have been rebuffed in a £4million approach for Wigan midfielder James McArthur.

The 26-year-old is keen on a move to the Premier League but Burnley will have to improve their bid.

McArthur joined Wigan from Scottish side Hamilton in 2010 and has made 151 appearances for the club.

He flourished under Roberto Martinez at the DW Stadium and was one of only a handful of players who didn't move on when they suffered relegation.
