Could Anderson Return for Clarets?

The on-loan Sunderland defender, Russell Anderson injured his cruciate knee ligaments during the Carling Cup win over Fulham in September and it was announced that he could be out until next season therefore being unlikely to play for the Clarets unless a permanent or further loan deal could be arranged for 2009/10.

News broke on the official site yesterday though that he had made significant progress on the road to recovery after just 10 weeks following surgery.

It was also stated he was currently at Turf Moor and had been having discussions with the club over the last three days

Burnely gaffer, Owen Coyle told the club's official website:

'Russell is in with us this week. I speak to him on a weekly basis and he's still our player until the end of the season.

'We're still paying the agreed fee with Sunderland and we felt it would be nice for him to come in for a few days.

'You don't want to put a time on when he's going to be back but I would hope the end of the season might be a realistic target. It's folly to put a target on it but everything is going to plan.'

Anderson hopes to be back running again early in the New Year with a view to making a return before the end of this season.

Owen Coyle has also made it plain he would like to sign the player permanently if he could:

'His performances were outstanding and I've said before, when he's back up and running and fully fit, he's a player I would love to have at the football club'

Well we have kind of heard this before about this time a la Berisha and Duff, but the interesting part for me is that we could be lining up a permanent deal for the player
