Coyle on about his New Van!

The Clarets today signed Remco van der Schaaf and we provide the thoughts of Owen Coyle on his fifth new signing of the summer

'We are trying to bring real quality players to the football club and in Remco we have undoubted quality, said Coyle speaking to the Official Site

'He is a powerful lad who is very good on the ball and a very capable player

'When he went to PSV Eindhoven from Vitesse Arnhem I think they paid three million Euros.

'He is still only just turned 29, so he will be a tremendous addition to the squad and I honestly think the next three years will be his best years. Hopefully we will benefit from that.

'I think it will be an exciting time when Burnley fans see him and I'm absolutely delighted to have him on board

'We worked very hard to sign Remco.

'We have been in negotiations for several weeks now and he had a lot of interest from a number of clubs, so we are delighted to nail this one down.

'He is a defensive type of midfield player who I feel will enhance our team.

'Last year we were very committed to going forward and we will do that again this year, but we don't want to leave ourselves wide open and I think Remco will patrol that area and give us a bit of protection.

'Equally, he is 6ft 1in, he can pass a ball and put his foot in where it hurts, so he's a terrific addition.

'He will join us now going to America, so that gives him a good chance to bond with his new team mates.

'But he has played at the top level throughout his career in Holland and I am sure he will have no trouble adjusting and complimenting everything we are trying to do at this football club'

Former Dutch Under 21 International, Remco van der Schaff, signed a three year deal with the club and will wear the Number 26 shirt for the Clarets. He arrived on a free transfer after failing to agree a new contract with his former club, Vitesse Arnhem.

So now we await to hear about the other player Coyle referred to today 'The other is a lot more complicated, but he is a real bit of quality - and we would need permission with his club because there is obviously a big fee involved with that player.

I have an idea who this player could be. I could also be well wide of the mark, but a few things recently have made me put 2 and 2 together and hopefully I've come up with 4.

I think you have got 5 ! My guess would be that you are out by 120ish miles in a southerly direction ! But I might have 5 also !
