Sky Sports were earlier tonight fuelling speculation that Tyrone Mears was a target for Sunderland. They understood Sunderland gaffer, Steve Bruce was in talks with Burnley regarding our right back
The club's official website have consequently been forced to make an official statement which reads.
'Burnley Football Club can confirm that contrary to media reports, the club is not in talks with Sunderland over the potential transfer of full-back Tyrone Mears'
With one day left of the transfer window which closes at 5pm on Monday 1st February, late deals of course remain a possibility.
If there is any truth in this rumour and we lose Mears at such a vital stage of the season, we will know once and for all that this club is only thinking of being in the Championship next season and has given up any thought of showing some ambition to survive in the top flight!
It will be a shame considering it has taken 33 years to get back where we belong!
We are third from bottom and fighting for survival, surely this club can't be that naive as to sell our best asset at this crucial time?
We will hear all the same old excuses if he does go about how wonderful we are to remain debt free and how we refuse to break our third-rate salary cap to retain him. What sort of message will that send out to the fans and players alike?
If we want to compete with the big boys in the top league in Europe we have to start acting like them and it that means going into debt than sobeit since every other club in the League is at a competitive advantage by being so.
Show some grit Burnley FC! Sunderland are just 3 points ahead of us in 13th place; they are a rival in the dogfight to avoid the drop! Who in their right mind would let a full back not so along ago being talked about as a future England international go to such a club?
If we hear that Mears wants to go, we will know why. Nothing to keep him at Burnley FC
