Cole No Deal?

Cole No Deal?

The former Sunderland striker Andrew Cole released recently by the Black Cats is reported to have rejected a contract offer from Burnley.

It is understood that Owen Coyle had offered our former loan striker a pay-as-you-play-deal

The Daily Mail says that this deal has failed to tempt Cole which, if true will come as a great disappointment to a number of Clarets fans. If he does not accept the deal and the report is true, he looks set to retire but a number of Clarets will be miffed if he continues with another club.

Not sure we should believe anything this paper prints relating to football. They are usually well wide of the mark. From what I hear OC has not even spoken with Cole.

Hope you are right. Makes you wonder if they just make it up or whether they believe a forum comment or if indeed there is an element of truth

I imagine they trawl through message forums and rumour sites when they need space to fill.

Will be interesting to see if they get this one right.If it is true also makes you wonder what the source might be. His agent trying to up the ante?

You probably have it spot on if it is true. That is the way most agents work these days and I'm sure Cole has got one of the best at it due to his career. Time will tell. The only part of the story that interest me is the pay as you play deal. This would benefit us more, but would Cole want a regular deal at his age.

It does seem a bit churlish of Cole to turn this down if the Daily Mail have this right. For someone thinking of retiring anyway, surely one more season on the pay/play basis is fair and is hardly going to make him poor!

I suppose it may depend on his future ambitions. Does he want to stay in football? Go on to coaching/management? I assume he will be looking to stay in the North West.

Oh well no point in speculating until the truth is out

Now confirmed as no deal in LT: ANDREW Cole will not be returning to Turf Moor, after last night rejecting Burnley's offer of a permanent contract. The former Manchester United and England striker, who had a successful three-month loan spell with the Clarets, spoke to manager Owen Coyle yesterday afternoon to confirm his decision.
