The Clarets have been linked to a number of potential transfer targets in recent weeks.
The targets have most notably been defenders following a disasterous start to the 2008/9 campaign in which we have leaked seven goals in two games and scored just once!
Owen Coyle speaking to the Burnley Express has clarified the transfer situation and he appears to be looking mainly at loans that could be potential permanent signings:
'I've chased a few things up in terms of loans, and been thwarted in one or two areas, but we'll continue and do our best to get somebody in.
'If you go into the Premier League, in terms of salaries there's only so much you can pay, and players have to want to come out of the Premier League to play in the Championship.
'It's not as simple as picking the phone up and saying 'I want him' and it happens.
'Finance will probably play the biggest part of it.
'We would be looking for a loan with a view to buy, and we have to ensure if it came to buying, we have the right funding in place to do that.'
If any full signings rather than loans become an option, Coyle has until 12 midnight on September 1st to make any signings before the Summer Transfer Window closes. This is one more extra day than usual due to August 31st falling on a Sunday.
