Rumour Mill-Paterson Clarets Interest Confirmed

Scunthorpe United have denied they have received a Clarets bid of 400,000 for leading striker Martin Paterson However an offer from Burnley is believed to be on the way according to a local paper, the Scunthorpe Telegraph



Acting Scunthorpe chairman Rex Garton has confirmed that Burnley have been in touch with official Chairman,Steve Wharton to enquire about the player and a formal bid is expected soon.The paper also suggests though that the reported bid of 400k will not be enough to allow the player to leave Glanford Park.

A tribunal led to Scunthorpe having to pay an initial fee of 275,000 for the 21-year-old former Stoke City player and the Iron have since had to fork out another 60,000 due to player appearances.

They will want to recoup some of their losses although the club relegated to League 1 at the end of last season after just one season in the Championship, may find their financial plight a problem.

Obviously a target but is 400k going to be enough? Have we underbid again?

Did Norwich not have a 850k bid turned down mid season?

as they have been relegated i would of thought around 500k would see him arrive at the clarets.
