Rumour Mill-Christian Kalvenes

Rumour Mill-Christian Kalvenes

Setanta Sports have suggested that Dundee United left back, Christian Kalvenes might choose Burnley ahead of a return to his native Norway.

His contract at Dundee United has expired and the 31 year old is now looking for another club.

Kalvenes joined Dundee United for a fee of around £50,000 in August 2006, signing from Norwegian side, SK Brann where he started his professional career back in 1995 before returning to the club in 2003 via Asane and Norwegian Premier League side Sogndal.

"The club and I have agreed on a contract," said Kalvanes "It is a very good team, who are attempting to move up from last year.

"Clearly, it's very exciting to get such an opportunity."

The defender also stressed that nothing has yet been signed but indicated he was heading to Burnley to sort out some finer details.It is also understood from other sources that he could well sign a contract on Monday

That as come out of the blue. Nothing about him on the grapevine that I was aware of. Terms agreed, but nothing signed!! Well, well, well. We do need to blend youth with experience and need to replace Jordan. Will this lad be good enough to be a regular left back? I will have to get on their message boards for intel :-)

Sounds a decent little player, would add to your squad. It would seem that suddenly, Burnley have become active in the transfer window!

Aye, we suddenly got out the blocks at long last and by Monday could have signed at least four players within about a week
