Unsworth Gets more Time to Decide

Owen Coyle has confirmed that he has given David Unsworth more time to think about the offer of a player/coach at Turf Moor.

According to the Official Site,the former Everton and England 34-year old defender will now make his decision during the next two weeks.

Coyle had let it be known he wanted both Unsworth and James O'Connor to make a decision on their offers over the Bank Holiday weekend but he seems to have had a change of heart over Unsworth.

He withdrew the offer for O'Connor as we know after learning that the player had other irons in the fire. The midfielder now looks set to join the Owls with Laws signing him ahead of Championship rivals, Southampton,Coventry, Blackpool and Forest. Recently relegated Leicester are also reported to be interested

Cant understand why this is dragging on. I thought Coyle was calling the shots by wanting a weekend decision. Must be more complex than we think

Coyle was always going to give Unsworth more time , due to being a big career decision for him , Unsworth has to decide whether to carry on his playing career or begin a career in coaching earlier than he planned !

Championship rivals! Leicester?? LOL. I think Bernie is correct plus like the article mentions JOC had other offers.

I don't think its so much the other clubs , Coyle has made it clear , he only wants players that want to play for the club , o'conner was offered a contract before he went on holiday , so he has had 2 weeks and the few days since he got back , yet he wanted more time so Coyle withdrew the offer ! In Unsworth' case , Coyle wouldnt have offered him contract as a player , the offer is to coach and register as a squad player in case of emergency , Unsworth intended to get into coaching in a year or two , so has to make a big decision for himself !

Oops corrected Leicester, that will teach me to cut&paste! lol No qualms about any of the above Unsworth comments, although it does seem odd that one minute Coyle appears to be demanding a decision by weekend (if that was in fact true as reported) and then appears to backtrack, giving him not an extra day or two but two weeks?
