Rumour Mill-Martin Paterson



One Sunday paper this morning has linked the Clarets with Scunthorpe's Northern Ireland International striker, Martin Paterson.

The News of the World suggests Burnley have offered £400,000 for the 21-year old forward.

Martin Paterson started his professional career with his local side Stoke City and spent three years with the club between 2004-2007. During this time he had a loan spell with Grimsby Town during the 2006-7 season.

Paterson was signed by Scunthorpe United manager Nigel Adkins as a replacement for the departed Billy Sharp in the Summer of 2007.

He scored on his full début for the Iron giving the side 1-0 lead against League One side Hartlepool United in the League Cup before his side eventually lost the game 2-1.

Paterson scored 7 goals in 11 starts and this impressive statistic led to the player being called up for the Northern Ireland squad.

In the January window of 2008 Norwich had a £850,000 bid rejected by Scunthorpe so if the rumour is true, £400,000 seems a little light. However with Scunthorpe being relegated to League One they could possibly now be strapped for cash and they might now be tempted by this lower offer.

Damn good striker, 13 goals in 35 appearances for S ****hrope last season. Strike rate of 1 in 3 at our level. Hope this one works out

Young with a bit of pace. Just the type of player we should be looking at.
