David Nugent Has Signed On Loan

David Nugent  Has Signed On Loan

David Nugent is coming to Burnley from Portsmouth on a six months loan deal with an option to buy.

This was a frantic last minute deal before the transfer window closed at 5pm today and all parties are hoping the paperwork via the fax has all gone through in time.

The 24 year old striker, has one England cap and started his career with Bury before moving to local rivals, Preston North End in January 2005 for a fee of £100,000. The Clarets at the time under Steve Cotterill were also hoping to sign the striker so things have now come full circle.

In July 2007, Preston accepted a £6 million bid for the player with Sunderland also believed to have put in a similar bid.

Nugent though has made just 34 appearances for Pompey scoring only 3 goals and had been expected earlier in this summer transfer window to be joining Middlesbrough on loan.It would also appear Hull City were interested in the player and that today we beat the Tigers to his signature.

We did need another striker! I like the loan with option to buy bit, Nugent has alot to prove. I don't think he has been given a chance at Pompey hopefully Coyle can build him up and get him banging in the goals!

If this is true it might not be a bad signing. Has struggled for games at Portsmouth and, if his last minute miss against City is anything to go by, needs a few games under his belt to regain his sharpness. Only question is, who will OC leave out ?

The Clarets are though still awaiting confirmation that the Premier League received sufficient paperwork by the 5pm deadline

(Pompey fan here): I hope he does play well for you guys, as he has been given every chance to play well here, but seems to have failed more or less everytime. He just needs to sort out his finishing, as that last minute attempt against City proved. Good luck with him.

Would be interested to understand his wage demands. Storey said that Hull were a possibility for him also but he chose Burnley. Should go down well with the Nobbers!
