Reported Medical for Nimani at...Turf Moor!
The France Under 21 international striker Frederic Nimani has been granted permission to move in January by his current club, AS Monaco and Skysports.com believe he is close to sealing a switch to Burnley.
They go on to say he is currently in the UK and is undergoing a medical at Burnley ahead of joining them on loan for the rest of the season with a view to a permanent deal.
If the 21 year old forward and winger impresses at Turf Moor, Burnley could pay €4million (£3.5million) to sign him for the long term at the end of the current season.
If this report is true we will have beaten off the challenge from a number of interested Premier League clubs including Birmingham and thankfully it would appear Bolton Wanderers.
It had been understood Coyle whilst at Burnley FC had begun negotiations with AS Monaco for the player and there was a fear he could poach yet another of our targets from under our noses and bring the player instead to the Reebok. Early rumours this morning about a move to the Reebok appear to be unfounded.
