It's that man, Alan Nixon again who has been publshing rumours in the Mirror about our players.
Now it is the turn of Robbie Blake who is currently out-of-contract in the summer and has made media comments that he feels he may have to leave Burnley FC for footballing reasons.
He has clearly been frustrated by the lack of starts under current Burnley gaffer, Brian Laws and at the age of 34, feels he needs to be playing more games despite his love for Burnley Football Club.
Blake has been very much an impact player for the Clarets this season in the Premier League although of course he will be remembered for that stunning goal of the season he scored against Manchester United in our first home game back in the top flight for 33 years. A goal that ensured a 1-0 victory over the current Premier League Champions back in August 2009.
He made 16 starts in the first part of the season under Owen Coyle but since the arrival of Brian Laws has only managed to be named in the starting eleven on 4 occasions although has been a regular on the bench and made a number of cameo appearances.
Brian Laws has made it plain that he would like to offer Blake a new contract but talks seem to have stalled and Nixon now states that Scottish side Hearts want to give him a two-year deal in the SPL.
Nixon goes on to say that Blake is expected to head to Tynecastle for talks in the next few days before making his decision although is understood to prefer to play in England.
