The Clarets may well have two McCann's in midfield next season if speculation in the Daily Mail today is true.
Bolton Wanderers` midfielder Gavin McCann could be moving across Lancashire to join Burnley on a free transfer.
It would be rather ironic after all the rumours linking Owen 'Judas' Coyle with a raid on our club for our players in the summer that the first movement between the two clubs could be one in the opposite direction.
McCann has one England cap to his name having played in a friendly against Spain at Villa Park in 2001.
He came through Everton's Youth Academy eventually making 11 appearances for the Toffees before signing for Sunderland in 1998 and playing a part in their 1999 promotion season. McCann signed for Villa in 2003 but suffered a number of injury setbacks before becoming a Holt End favourite due to his hard-tackling and boundless energy.
In June 2007, he signed for Bolton Wanderers.
He is out of contract this summer and Bolton Wanderers manager Owen Coyle revealed last month that the club will not be offering McCann a new contract.
The 32-year-old has been hit with a serious knee injury that has kept him sidelined since January.
'I have spoken to Gavin and said because of the nature of that injury I am not in the position to offer him a new contract,' Coyle said in The Bolton News. 'What I will do, and in fairness to him he`s been a very good player and a great lad, is when he is fit I`ll give him an opportunity, it might be a month, to go and earn one.'
It is not clear if that one month trial has been successful or not.
