Owen Coyle has agreed a one-year loan deal with Independiente del Valle for 19-year old Fernando Guerrero with a view to a permanent move. Guerrero, who now becomes the Clarets sixth summer signing, played for Real Madrid's reserve team in Spain's Segunda División B for two years (Real Madrid Castilla) before returning back to his homeland of Ecuador.
Guerrero impressed Owen Coyle during his trial in the US and played in both games against VC Fusion and Portland Timbers.
He arrived at Turf Moor with his agent for further talks on Tuesday afternoon and has now joined the squad for the Scotland tour
The Ecuador International however will require International clearance and the paperwork is not expected to be in place until late afternoon today (Thursday 6th August)
Clarets fans travelling up to Scotland therefore for tonight's friendly against Kilmarnock will not get the chance to see our new starlet perform. He should however be available to play in Saturday`s final friendly at St Johnstone.
It was originally reported in the media that Burnley had faxed a £2million offer for Guerrero after his successful trial in the US but it would appear that cash-strapped Burnley have decided to take up the cheaper option of a loan deal.
This makes good financial sense and allows the Clarets to see how well the kid performs at the highest level of European football before taking up the option of perhaps signing him on a permanent deal in time for the start of the 2010-11 season.
