Brendan Flood has clarified the situation regarding the position of Steve Davis and the rumours flying about that he could follow Coyle to Bolton along with some of the players.
The Lancashire Telegraph understand that Owen Coyle has enquired about first team coach Steve Davis potentially joining him at Bolton once the compensation package is sorted out and he is unveiled officially as the Trotters new manager.
Flood has not stated that would be an impossibility but is quoted as saying:
"It`s an option for him to consider as much as anything,Steve`s held in high regard and we certainly see it as preferable that he`s part of our future rather than moving away."
The club have gone some way to proving that by making him caretaker manager for the game against Stoke City this Saturday over the head of current assistant manager, Sandy Stewart who is presumably definitely going to join his mentor at the Reebok.
It is perhaps yet another thing for Clarets fans to worry about at this difficult time but surely Steve will stay in view of his heritage with the club as a former player, captain and now chief coach. It would be a terrible kick-in the teeth (if we have any remaining after Coyle's departure) should we lose Steve Davis as well.
There is however perhaps more encouraging news as regards the players should Coyle also be tempted to poach his favourites from Burnley during this critical time in the January transfer window. Flood has assured fans that Coyle will not be allowed to approach Burnley FC for players this month. We are told that a block has been placed on Coyle signing Burnley players during this transfer window as part of the legal discussions.
