Media reports in Scotland have suggested that Owen Coyle could make a move for Celtic captain Gary Caldwell. The Scottish centre-back with just under 12 months left on his contract could be available for a knock-down price with Celtic at risk of losing one of their prized assets for nothing next summer unless he extends his contract at Parkhead.
It is understood new gaffer, Tony Mowbray wants to keep his captain but he will have to get him to agree a new deal and the feeling is that Caldwell might be tempted to move down South and play in the best league in Europe.
It would certainly be an interesting signing for the Clarets with two brothers in the side both competing for a centre back position. Gary if you didn't know by now is also of course the brother of our Steven Caldwell! Two captains and two centre backs? Gary though is quite a versatile player and he has also played at right-back and as a defensive midfielder .
Gary Caldwell, now 27 started his professional career with Newscastle in 1999 and during his stay at St James' Park also had loan spells at Darlington, Hibernian, Coventry City and Derby County.
During the 2003-04 season, Caldwell was given a free transfer by Newcastle and he then signed a short-term contract with Hibs for the second half of that season. His career really took off with Hibernian and he caught the eye of Celtic signing for the Buoys in the summer of 2006. His manager at Hibernian? Yep,Tony Mowbray!
The Scottish International is also believed to be interesting Wigan.
If he does come to Turf Moor though it would certainly be a bizarre twist of fate considering only a few weeks back Owen Coyle was being courted for the manager's job at Parkhead and now he could now be about to wrestle their captain away from them.
