Everton cant Buy Eagles for Toffee

There was more speculation over the weekend that David Moyes could renew his interest in signing Clarets winger, Chris Eagles.

Reports suggested Everton could be considering a bid for the player in the January window.

The People believe Eagles is currenly being paid just 8000/week and that Everton could easily improve that salary with a view to enticing the former Manchester United player to change clubs.

Eagles is now probably worth about 4 million so Everton would have to virtually double the amount the Clarets paid United for his services.

Premier League Pledge Update: Friday, October 30

The following press release was issued by the club and sent to Vital Burnley and we gladly pass on the information to our posters.

Burnley Football Club would like to thank supporters for their continued patience.

The manual processing of over 7,000 supporters applications, along with the options available, has taken longer than anticipated.

However, we can now confirm that all supporters (not Premium Credit) who requested refunds will begin receiving cheques via post next week.

The first batch of cheques covers supporters with surnames A - P inclusive.

The ticket office continues to process the remaining couple of thousand applications and further information on these will be announced next week.

Finally, there are still a number of supporters who have not yet sent back their requests for refunds.

We respectfully ask that anyone who has not yet returned their form do so as soon as possible.

Supporters with Premium Credit agreements are currently having their agreements cancelled by the club and Premium Credit will send refunds accordingly.

Thank you for your valuable support

4m for Eagles sounds about right when you consider how many PL games he actually starts! Besides, did you know he used to be a paperboy in Hemel Hempstead and delivered my mates paper!

This year & last I had to do mine on premium credit, they have already stopped taking payments and I received the money I had already paid about 10 days ago. So premium credit are pretty on the ball with repaying money back.

Yeh, thanks for that Merlin and Adam was a gardener.

Is the Prem Pledge turning out a bit more complicated to administer than expected? I am not a part of it, but remain a hardcore fan of Barry Kilby. I am also someone who thinks Eagles is worth more than 4m to a stuttering team like Everton. I hope he sticks around, but wouldn't bust my wage structure to keep him, as well as he has played lately, and as much I will always say he will 'always be a Claret'.

Is there a sell on clause meaning man u could cream off some of our profits from Eagles,? if so we need to add a million. In anycase I agree with CP Eagles is worth more than 4 million. How many years is left on his contract.?
Grimsby Claret
I hope its untrue, we could do without the conjecture just when he's finally started to start playing a bit.

Turfman and the gang, Johnny B from Vital Man City. You've got email...!
Johnny Baguette
I am hoping we are in a position where we don't need to sell/ off load players, especaily someone like Eagles.
sheclaret
Same here Sheclaret ( PS JB-Email received, read and responded to!)

I would not have thought that we needed to offload players. But, I just find myself wondering whether the reason Eagles hasn't been starting has had something to do with whatever his agent might have been up to during and since the summer. I similalry wonder whether the low profiles of Edgar and Eckersley are because the arbitration over their fee hasn't been settled yet.
Couch Potato
I don't think thats the case regarding Eagles. He just did not seem to be playing well when he came on from the bench and until recently didn't deserve a starting place. The fact Coyle has now given him one suggests there is nowt Machiavellian going on. Not sure about Eckerlsey & Edgar, the tribunal side all seems to have gone quiet. I thought Edgar's deal was close to being resolved without the need to go to tribunal but maybe not. To be honest the few times I have seen Eckersley he has looked a liability and more likely to get a red card than not!
