Jay Rodriguez Cheers Things Up!

Jay Rodriguez  Cheers Things  Up!

Jay Rodriguez has accepted a new two-year deal for the Clarets becoming the second of the six out of contract players to accept a new deal offered by the club.

Jay joins Brian Jensen and the only two players still to officially decide are James O'Connor and David Unsworth.

It has now just been confirmed that Andrew Cole has turned down the offer joining Jon Harley on the bye-bye road.

At least there is some cheer today. Local boy, Jay signed his first professional contract last summer for the Clarets and is a product of the club's youth system. He spent most of this year on loan to Stirling Albion and there was also a rumour that he might be on loan again next season, this time to Partick Thistle.

He made his debut for the Clarets coming on as a late substitute against Bristol City at Turf Moor back in December 2007.

Clarets fans first saw him in action for the first-team during a pre-season friendly at Wrexham in July 2007 when he came on late from the bench and scored a penalty.

Rodriguez will be 19 in July and will be looking forward to breaking through into the first team.

Lots of good reviews of this lad and unfortunately I've not seen him play, but great news to tie him down for a bit longer. OC must believe he has something about him and is going to give him a chance. At 19 he should now be breaking into the 1st team or basically he should be let go of. Kids of a high quality would be given 4 or 5 year contracts, so Jay still has a lot to prove. Perhaps he will do the pre-season with us and go out for a month or 2 to keep him match fit and gain more experience. Ideally come back to us ready for the hectic winter schedule to give us a boost.

Very true. With Kyle and McCann now being firmly part of the first team it would be great news if a couple more could make it so soon. The cheapest way by far and wages will be far lower than new players coming into the club. It was the youth set up at Manure that got them started for their success over the last decade or so. They had several youth come through all at once.
