The Daily Mirror suggests that Owen Coyle wants to sign former loan defender, Middlesbrough right-back Rhys Williams.
The chances of this happening could be enhanced with the Clarets being promoted to the top flight for the first time since 1976 and his current club going in the opposite direction following Boro's relegation from the Premier League.
In January 2009, he signed a new two-year contract at Middlesbrough and on the same day signed for the Clarets.
Sadly for the Clarets his loan spell expired on the Monday following the last match of the fixture list for 2008/9. That 4-0 victory against Bristol City at home confirmed we would be in the play-offs but despite appeals the club were unable to retain his services for the play-offs semi legs and final so he returned to Middlesbrough in early May.
The defender was a popular figure at Turf Moor and he seems to have enjoyed his stay at the club.
He returned to Turf Moor in our play offs semi final first leg against Reading coming on at half time to thank the fans.
The 20 year old was also a Burnley VIP guest at the Wembley play-offs final on Monday and is clearly keeping in close contact with his former team mates.
The Perth born player recently decided to opt for a full international career with Australia turning down Wales despite having played for them at Under 21 level.
The Guardian recently reported that Coyle could be willing to pay around £1m for Rhys Williams and if the rumours are true it will be interesting to see if Middlesbrough are prepared to accept such an offer considering their plight and relegation to the Championship.
