The January transfer window has closed without much excitement at Turf Moor
The Premier League though will grant applications from clubs to complete transactions after the deadline today if there is email confirmation from the two clubs involved that a deal has been agreed in principle. This concession has been given to clubs to sign players after the 5pm deadline due to the adverse weather conditions today. The snow falling today has brought chaos to many regions of Britain,most noticeably in the South East affecting the ability of players to travel to new potential clubs to sign deals.
The Clarets are not believed to be involved in any deals post-deadline so we successfully appear to have retained Chris Eagles, Chris McCann and Wade Elliott, three players rumoured to be interesting Premier League sides.
Stoke City in particular were thought today to have put in a bid for Chris McCann, a figure by all accounts that fell well short of Burnley's valuation but after that rebuff they seemed to have thankfully lost interest
Although the January window is effectively closed and permanent deals are no longer possible the Club will still be able to sign players on emergency loan from next week.
This could be important with Owen Coyle keen to bring in another defender on loan. Celtic's Darren O'Dea is believed to be his target but we shall see what happens on that score.
So what must be the dullest transfer window on record as far as the Clarets are concerned has come to an end, with three players going out on loan (Jones Bradford Extension, Kiraly and van der Schaaf) with just Rhys Williams coming in on loan from Middlesbrough until the end of the season.
Sense of both relief and frustration I guess!
