The wolves are already picking over the bones of Burnley FC following our confirmed relegation back to the Championship on Sunday after the 4-0 defeat to Liverpool at Turf Moor.
The latest rumour in the Daily Mail today suggests we are literally under attack from Wolves with the suggestion that Mick McCarthy is wanting to take Andre Bikey to Molineux.
The former Reading man ,signed by Owen Coyle as a centre back in August 2009 has had a strange first season for the Clarets. He impressed in his first few games in the back four and in the absence of captain Steven Caldwell who was out injured for the opening part of the season with groin strain, Bikey made the centre of defence spot his own.
Owen Coyle though made a strange decision when Caldwell finally returned to the first team against Birmingham at home last October. Bikey lost his place in the back four and was tried in midfield and it seemed to work at first with Bikey scoring against Brum. Virtually for the rest of the season, Bikey when selected for the first team then found himself playing in front of the back four even when Caldwell once more succumbed to his persistent groin injury.
Brian Laws seemed to carry on with the tradition for a time preferring instead to select his central defence from Carlisle, Edgar and Duff. Rumours then circulated following the heavy 6-1 defeat against Manchester City at Turf Moor earlier this month,that Laws and Bikey were not seeing eye-to-eye. He has certainly spent most of his time on the bench these last few weeks and his last appearance in the starting eleven curiously enough was against Wolves at Molineux back in March this year.He came on from the bench in our away game against Hull City a couple of weeks ago but was only given four minutes in which to make an impression.
The Daily Mail claims that Mick McCarthy is hoping to complete a cut-price summer deal with the Clarets for Bikey in an effort to give the 25 year old Cameroon international a quick route back to the Premier League.
Bikey who signed a three-year deal for the Clarets would surely be tempted to play in the top flight again but with Barry Kilby stating they don't have to sell players to survive, you would have to hope that if he does leave for pastures new that we will be heavily compensated and get a decent amount of money for the player.
