Rumour Mill-Marney for the Clarets?

The Clarets have been linked with a move for 26 year old attacking midfielder,Dean Marney from Hull City.

According to reports in the Hull Daily Mail,the two clubs both of course relegated from the Premier League this season are close to concluding a deal although the move will not be able to officially go through until the summer transfer window opens.

Hull City, in dire financial straits and believed to be 35 million in debt are looking to reduce their wage bill from 38.9m to just 15m next season so a number of players are likely to be leaving in the close season.

Marney still has two years of his contract to run at the KC Stadium but it is understood a transfer fee has been agreed with Hull City acepting a bid by the Clarets. The player though still has to agree personal terms with Burnley and negotiations have yet to take place.The Hull Daily Mail state Marney is to meet with officials at Turf Moor early next week when both clubs will have completed their Premier League fixtures following their final games on Sunday. No further details of the move are available.

Barking-born, Marney came through Tottenham Hotspur's Youth System and made his debut for Spurs in August 2003 against Birmingham City. He never really made his name at White Hart Lane and during his time there had a number of spells out on loan playing for Swindon, QPR, Gillingham and Norwich City.

Hull gaffer, Phil Parkinson signed him in July 2006 for an undisclosed fee and he has since made over 125 appearances for the club.

Marney also has one cap at England Under 21 level.

Looks virtually certain to happen this one the way the Hull Mail article is written. Best of the players we have been linked with so far, reasonable age with Prem experience

I think I remember him scoring a Premier League hat trick once in a 5-1 Spurs win - Just cant seem to remember who it was against. Or I may be completely wrong. Dont think he would be a bad signing personally.
Claretdale
If its true looks like Laws is going to be the manager, I hope he gets off to a flyer next season because its going to get ugly for him if he starts to lose games. There a lot of fans don't want him here including me.

Despite being described as an attacking midfielder, he hasn't scored that many goals for Hull. It's only about 10 in something like 125 matches. Dale I think this is the match you might be thinking of, a brace not hatrick-When he returned to Tottenham, he was immediately thrown in at the deep end, as a last minute choice to face an Everton team on 1 January 2005, in which he scored the first and last goals of the match in a 5-2 victory, the second being a superb 25 yard curler into the top right corner.

Don't know much about Marney to be honest, but at least he's got premiership experience like the rest of our players ! Have you heard anything about Laws' appointment then Fedup ?
WelshClaret
You may be right about that TMP - I definetly remember him scoring a corker into the top corner.
Claretdale
Is he Captain standard? This may get boring but I want us to sign a Captain. The following don't get my vote for 2010/11...Caldwell, Grezza, Carlisle or Duff.

I think there was a Captain Marney from folklore wasn't there? Anyway I googled Marney Hull Captain and it would appear that he has deputised as Captain in the past for Hull so maybe that could be another bonus?
turfmanphil
Brian Stock is Doncaster captain - I still stand by my comment that I want him sat in front of our defence next season.
Claretdale
Its a great shout we need a Stock man
VinRogue
Don't know much about Dean Marney but I do about Brian Stock. He was easily the best player I saw in The Championship in 08/09.
RickersTwickers
Have seen him a few times on tv and he looks okay. We definitely need a few in midfield so it's a good start. I think if we could get the midfield sorted out a bit better then the defence wouldn't be under such pressure and wouldn't look as bad. Having said that, I watched 'the Road to Wembley' DVD the other night and there were the same horrible goals in the Championship so it wasn't a Premier league phenomenon!
ozjean
Don't get me started ozjean, we had a shocking defence and got promoted to the Prem League and then look shocked that we conceded a bucket load. Last season against Palace at home (night match) we went two nil down but came back and won 4 - 2, thats great for the Championship but Prem League 2 - 0 down means we are doomed again!
VinRogue
Daily Mail today (Friday 7th) state:Hull City midfielder Dean Marney is poised to swap one relegated club for another after agreeing to join Burnley in a 1m deal. One million?
turfmanphil
As a city fan this is great news for us, cant believe were getting a fee for him. He runs about a lot without much impact or end product in a game, there isnt many (if any) city who will miss him. Seems a nice bloke and tries his best but he is genuinely just not very good. Deffo no better than what you already have. 1million pound GET IN THERE LOL.
