Owen Coyle has been speaking about his new signing, David Edgar both in terms of reaching a settlement over his fee with Newcastle and his current ban.
The Bosman ruling states that clubs are entitled to compensation if a player is released out of contract under the age of 24.
This effects two of our current new signings, 20 year old rignt back, Richard Eckersley signed from Manchester United and defender, David Edgar signed from Newcastle who is 22.
It the two clubs can't agree a compensation fee then it has to be decided at a tribunal, something both parties would ideally like to avoid.
Owen Coyle has provided an update on the situation. Speaking to burnleycitizen.co.uk he said:
"We`ve been speaking to both clubs and, without agreeing, we are a little bit closer. All clubs are always looking to settle before getting involved in a tribunal and dialogue is continuing."
Another issue concerning David Edgar relates to his forthcoming ban being unavailable for our first match in the Premier League against Stoke at The Britannia this Saturday (August 15th).
Edgar was sent off for two yellow card offences in Newcastle`s final match of last season at Aston Villa and in theory picks up a one match ban for the start of 2009/10 despite moving clubs.
It would appear however that a precedent has been set that could bring into question the one-match ban.
Sebastien Bassong also formerly of Newcastle picked up a straight red (automatic three match ban) playing for the Magpies against Fulham in their penultimate match of the 2008/9 season.
However the player's new club Tottenham Hotspur have announced that he will be available for their first game of the season against Liverpool at White Hart Lane.
Something therefore is clearly unfair and it is understood that Owen Coyle will seek clarification with the Football Association.
