The Clarets are known to have made two bids to try and bring Heart's winger, Andrew Driver to Turf Moor with both being turned down by the SPL club.
There was speculation that we might increase the bid again especially since additional money from the Lafferty deal was now available. There were however reports suggesting Hearts wanted a seven-figure fee for Driver after it is understood Coyle's last bid amounted to £750,000.
Hints from the media suggested that Driver wanted to now leave Hearts and would like to play for the Clarets.
However further Clarets interest in the player has now been dampened by gaffer,Owen Coyle.
Coyle has confirmed that he has no intention to increase his bid for the 20-year-old leaving the ball firmly in Hearts' court
'We made two inquiries for Andrew and we're not preparing a third bid,' Coyle told BBC Sport.
'The way it was left was, if anything was going to happen, Hearts had to come back to us.'
'I felt we made a fair offer for the player.'
So we now await to see whether Hearts contact the club. Coyle gave no indication of the last bid on the table but for the moment our interest in the player looks to be dead in the water.
