Remember Andre Bikey? He was the Reading defender, who in a fit of pique chucked a wobbly (and his shirt!) in our play-off semi-final first leg against Reading at Turf Moor!
He got a red card for a blatant foul after stamping on Robbie Blake and then saw red again going on a bizarre rampage, taking ages to take off his shirt and throw it to the ground in a rage!
Bikey was charged with improper conduct by the Football Association. The outcome led to Bikey being banned for four matches which included the second-leg defeat at the Madejski Stadium and he will now also miss the first three games of 2009-10.
Reading also hit Bikey with a two-week fine warning him about his future conduct.
So a bit of an hothead and not the first time he has been sent off chucking a tantrum
However if the rumours are true in the Mirror, Owen Coyle is about to make a £2.5 million bid for the centre half.
The 24-year-old Cameroon international appears to have impressed Coyle with his strong build and pace despite his temperament
It would appear Bikey has a clause in his contract that could force the Royals to sell him if a bid of £3 million comes in but Coyle is looking for a lower figure by way of a compromise.
One question on every Clarets fan's lips though must surely be do we really need another defender having already brought in Mears, Edgar, Easton and Eckersley to supplement Caldwell, Carlisle, Duff, Kalvenes, Jordan and Alexander?
Bikey started his professional career with Espanyol in 2002. After a brief spell with Paços de Ferreira in 2004 he moved to Shinnik Yaroslavl in Russia, before signing for Lokomotiv Moscow in July 2005. Reading agreed a season-long loan deal in August 2006 with the Royals having an option to purchase the player at the end of the loan.
In April 2007 Bikey signed a three-year contract with Reading for a transfer fee believed to be over £1 million.
