Coyle on Bikey Confirming Interest
Burnley gaffer, Owen Coyle has confirmed speculation in the media that Burnley FC are interested in bringing powerful but controversial Reading defender, Andre Bikey to Turf Moor
Speaking on the Official Burnley website he said:
'I have made an enquiry, but he is one of a number of players we have made an enquiry about.I made it to Reading and that is in the public domain, for whatever reason, but we will have to see how that goes. If we were going to be talking about every player we had been linked with, or made a general enquiry about, then it would get quite tiresome.There are a number of players who we feel could enhance our squad and time will tell whether the aforementioned played is one of them'
The statement follows earlier speculation by the Mirror in particular that we were about to put in an improved offer of £2.8 million. Vital Burnley reported the rumour earlier this morning and you can read our article by clicking this link below:
Rumour Mill-Crikey, Bikey Deal Getting Close?
Reading manager,Brendan Rodgers though insists Andre Bikey is going nowhere despite rumours suggesting he will sign for Burnley today
'We've had a couple of inquiries with regards to Andre, but there's nothing to report,' Rodgers told the Reading Chronicle. 'He's here with us.'
Clarets fans will be hoping for a quick conclusion, one way or the other regarding this transfer possibility. We certainly don't want another long and protracted exchange like the Tudgay affair.
