There is now however, as predicted a club statement on the Official Website and we repeat this below
Club Statement on Official Website
Burnley Football Club can confirm that contrary to a national media report, the club is NOT seeking a replacement for first team manager Brian Laws.
The Sun newspaper today alleges that club chairman Mr Barry Kilby is in the process of looking for a replacement for Brian, who was only appointed manager in January 2010.
However, Mr Barry Kilby insisted:
'This is a ludicrous, irresponsible, damaging and inaccurate piece of journalism.
'We are not in the process of looking for a replacement for Brian and everyone involved with Burnley Football Club is putting every ounce of effort into staying in the Premier League.'
Burnley Football Club will make no further comment on this matter.
