Rumour Mill-Jensen to join Beastly Bolton?

Rumour Mill-Jensen to join Beastly Bolton?

Brian Jensen's contract at Burnley expires in the Summer and there were numerous rumours recently that he could be leaving Turf Moor in the close season as a free agent and be moving to Portugal. A number of Portuguese clubs were understood to be interested in his services.

In today's Daily Mail though, there is an indication that if he does move, it could be much closer to home than the continent of Europe.

The Mail reports that the 34 year old stopper has opened talks over a new contract at Turf Moor and is seeking a new two-and-a-half year deal at the club.

However the paper goes onto suggest that should a new deal not be agreed, his former gaffer, Owen Coyle might be tempted to bring the Dane to the Reebok on a free transfer.

At least the article wasn't by Alan Nixon!! I do wonder though if we do go down (or for that matter stay up) how many of our players will be Coyle targets in the close season and indeed how many at the moment are hoping they will be!

or how many at the moment we are hoping will be. This is one such example. Decent keeper at CCC level, decent understudy in the Prem, but not a 1st choice for me.

After seeing his head-down "tackle" at the weekend I just hope this isn`t true.Or are you winding us up TMP?I know your struggling at the moment and Laws is taking some stick but you could have appointed Megson and then you would have had something to be down about.

Its the Mail not me that are doing the winding if it aint true! But if it is true and it happens, we will take Jääskeläinen off you! :-)

I think we need to keep Jensen. A lot of the goals that we've shipped this season are down to what's been happening in front of him.

Portugal.......Porto Champions League in goal Brian Jenson.....? Bragga unfashionable but doing well with a young Portuguese Manager Domingos and they also have Portuguese keeper Eduardo at No 1...doubt it, Sporting Lisbon Europa......NO, Benfica...unlikely. All other 12 clubs in the Prem League could not pay enough imo to secure his services.

I'd be surprised if many of our players would be wanted by OC other than perhaps Fletcher and possibly McCann / Eagles, as they all have youth on their side. Maybe Mears too. Personally, I think Fletcher would thrive on a season in the Championship, and McDonald probably feels more wanted by Laws than he ever did by Coyle. Eagles would be up against the excellent Lee for a place in the Bolton team so if it's football he wants, he's probably best staying put too. With the news yesterday about the considerably improved parachute deal, I'm starting to warm to the idea of being equipped to field a strong team in the Championship. Jensen, I'd give him two more years but would be looking for a new goalkeeper who is capable of challenging for the first team.

CC - What's the new parachute deal? I seem to have missed that.

There's absolutely no chance of Jensen going to Bolton. As well as Jaaskelainen we've got Ali Al Habsi and Adam Bogdan. One a top class keeper and the other a fantastic prospect.

£16 m per season for two years then two seasons of £8 m for year 3 and 4. Considering our wage bill was circa £11.5m in our promotion year, this is going to give us some competitive advantage over our rivals. I guess Kilby won't be trying to take the Premier League to court over this any mroe ! but it does seem unfair to other clubs (while revealing just how significant our promotion to the Premier League was in financial terms).
