The Summer transfter deadline will soon be upon us with the window closing at 5pm on Tuesday 1st September next week.
The media are therefore in overdrive as speculation mounts about last minute deals.
One such rumour in the People today suggests that Owen Coyle wants to bring out-of-favour Hull City striker Daniel Cousin to Turf Moor in order to bolster his attack.
The 32-year old Gabon International signed for Hull City from Rangers in September 2008 on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee, believed to be around £1.5 million. The player though has since clashed with both his team-mates and his bosses at the KC Stadium and despite a bright start for the Tigers no longer appears to be in Phil Brown's plans.He was recently taken off early on in the 5-1 home defeat by Spurs a few days ago and appeared to throw a strop after refusing to shake Phil Brown's hand.
Cousin talking about the incident said:
"I have nothing against the club.I've got two years left on my contract, but I don't see why I shouldn't leave.I can't see myself returning to play in France because of my age. I just want to continue my career in England."
It is understood though that the striker is on a hefty salary certainly one that Owen Coyle is not prepared to meet so the speculation is that Burnley are after a season-lonng loan deal with Hull City contributing towards his salary.
The tall 6ft 1' imposing striker previously played for a number of French clubs including Martigues and Niort before moving to Le Mans Union Club 72. He then joined RC Lens in the summer of 2004 before joining Rangers in August 2007 after signing a three-year deal for a reported fee of £750,000.
