The Clarets have today agreed a player/cash-deal with Rangers for striker Kyle Lafferty ending a long saga of speculation about the future of the Northern Ireland International.
Burnley have formally agreed a £3m fee for the Northern Ireland striker, with a further £250,000 payable on appearances and a sell-on clause that includes 10% of any future profit. Alan Gow will hopefully be coming the other way as part of the deal.
Rangers have therefore won the battle over Old Firm rival,Celtic and Championship side,Wolves to sign the player although both deals are now subject to the players agreeing personal terms with their respective new clubs
The Clarets will now speak with 25-year-old Rangers midfielder Alan Gow to hopefully agree terms and complete the deal.
Owen Coyle speaking to the Official Burnley FC site confirmed the situation:
'We have received a very good offer from Rangers - a deal worth close to £4m when you include Alan (Gow), who has been offered to us in return as part of the package.
'Ultimately, from the fans point of view, Kyle wanted to leave the club after saying he felt it was time to move on.
'Providing the deal is concluded we wish him well, but ultimately we want players who are fully committed to Burnley Football Club'
Well said, Owen and let's hope this is the end of the matter and we can move on and spend some of this money to secure our targets.
