Ade Gets Houston Lift-Off

Ade Gets Houston Lift-Off

Owen Coyle has confirmed on the Official Site that Ade Akinbiyi is indeed looking at a potential move to MLS team Houston Dynamo in the USA.

Coyle said:

'Ade is in negotiations with the MLS over a move to Houston and he would go there with our blessing.He has been a magnificent professional and a great servant to Burnley Football Club.But he wants a change of lifestle and I would never stand in his way.'

Ade's agent Gary Mellor is also quaoted as saying:

'We're in negotiations with the MLS over a move and we are hopeful of reaching an agreement.Ade will meet the Houston manager this weekend and we will take things from there'

The media has been fuelling speculation about this potential move over the past week and was first reported as a rumour by Vital Burnley in our Rumour Mill-Houston We Dont Have a Problem, Ade article a week ago:

Good luck Ade, you have been great for the Clarets and will be missed.

Thought there were one too many reports in the media that this might be happening. Will be a good move for Ade if he pulls this off

It would ve a very good move for Ade - and good luck to him. I just think that other than THAT goal at Chelsea - his second stint has been largely a non-event.

Good luck to Ade, he's definately given some great debates, and entertainment, who could forget his debut when he came on against Sunderland and was still getting applauded and was sent off. In palying terms think its time for a move. As with the team we have and the quality who are on the bench I don't think he's going to get anymore games in a Burnley shirt. I wish him all the very best

Ill always remember him for that game away to Luton! Best day out under Cotterill that match. Spicer in goal, down to ten men, Ade's hattrick and a 3-2 victory

I enjoyed his goal at Southampton, putting away a Branchie cross, on a day that many of us were more excited at the start of the game as to what wonder kid Walcott could show us. Not much that I remember from that day, but I hope Theo gets another hat-trick against Croatia... and that Ade makes the move to Houston and enjoys it.
