Keeping Nugent Top of Laws To-Do List

Keeping Nugent Top of Laws To-Do List

David Nugent our on-loan Portsmouth striker is due to return to Fratton Park on January 22nd. It is understood Pompey want to cash in on the striker to ease their financial situation.

Before the managerial changes Coyle made it plain the club did not have enough money to sign Nugent on a permanent deal and that their only hope was to try and get Portsmouth to extend their loan deal to the end of the season,

Most Clarets fans thought we would lose out simply because Portsmouth are in such dire financial straits they would refuse a loan extension preferring instead to sell the player to reduce their debt.

Our new manager though, Brian Laws only confirmed yesterday as the new Burnley FC gaffer is a keen admirer of Nugent and told the official site:

'David is a terrific player, who I once tried to nick him from Bury when I was at Scunthorpe.But I've watched his career and now he's an established striker, a good one, and we want to keep him here'

The Official Site actually intimate this aim is actually at the top of Laws to-do list.

Laws continued:

'David is a quality player, and when you look for a striker who has a goalscoring record in the Premier League, and they're available, they're hard to come by.When you've found one, keep him, and it's important we do, so we'll certainly be working very hard with Portsmouth and David and hopefully talk him into staying.'

It is thought the main problem could be Nugent's salary rather than the transfer fee so a permanent deal still looks a problem and whether a loan extension is still an option with Portsmouth desperate for money remains to be seen.

Do you mean you actually need him to play for you rather than cash in on him? I think that will mess with Nugent's mind to be honest; he clearly doesn't like being at Fratton Park?

Can Pompey pay his wages too. I think he wants to play in the North West and at the moment we can offer him that chance. I feel gutted for Pompey fans that their club is in such a dire situation but I don't see Nugent as your saviour so let him stay up t north!

I don't want him back Gino, I'd only have him back if we can't get the ban lifted.

We need goals from somewhere, and what we have at the moment is pants. I used to hate Nugent, but latter half of last season he came good in my opinion with some ultra-solid displays, particularly against Spurs and Stoke. The money situation is annoying, but I don't think 'cashing in' on someone like Nugent whilst Premiership survival is still in sights is the right thing to do.

Plus loaning him to one of the teams in the relegation dog fight does seem a financial choice rather than a logical choice.

There is a rumour floating about though that Judas is wanting to take him to Bolton for £3m. Woooooooooooo look at you who has some money. Please take Bolton down you are a disgrace!

I hope Laws gets a result on Nugent, it'll be a big loss to the Clarets if he does'nt and even worse if he ends up at Bolton!

It will be a big test of Nugent's loyalty if we are both in the race. Will he choose Burnley or will he go to his lovemaster?

It would be a huge smack in the face to Coyle as well if somehow we pulled this off. I wish I was confident we could but just don't think we have the pulling power compared to Bolton
