Burnley X-Files: All Go for Ade,Little & Spicer!

Burnley X-Files: All Go for Ade,Little & Spicer!

Vital Burnley brought you news this week that former Clarets defender, Wayne Thomas had been released by Southampton and was now looking for a new club along with 12 of his team mates.

A number of our other former players though are also on the move from their current clubs.

Steve Cotterill at Notts County has released Ade Akinbiyi, a striker of course he knew well from his days in charge at Turf Moor. Ade has hardly featured at all in Notts County's promotion this season from League 1 as Champions. He has made just one start and has been mainly on the bench all season. Delroy Facey, who had a brief loan spell with the Clarets in 2003, has also been released by County. He too has not featured too much in County's promotion season and spent three months of it out on loan to Lincoln City.

Cotterill himself might soon be on the move. He could be going to Coventry as their new gaffer and is currently mulling over the offer.

Glen Little is another casualty and the 34 year old is leaving Sheffield United after making just seven league starts and nine appearances from the bench all season.

After being released by Reading, he had a trial at Bramall Lane before signing a one-year contract in July 2009.

Former Clarets midfielder,John Spicer now 26 is also on the move after Doncaster Rovers decided not to renew his contract.He joined Doncaster Rovers in June 2008 after being released by the Clarets. Spicer spent the last few months out on loan to Leyton Orient after signing for them in March 2010.

A couple of our former loans will also be moving on in the summer.

Paul McVeigh has been released by Norwich for the second time after returning to Carrow Road and signing a one year contract in July 2009.

Former Sheffield Wednesday defender, Graham Coughlan now 35 is another who has not been offered a new contract.Coughlan signed a two-year contract with Shrewsbury for an undisclosed fee in July 2008 after leaving Rotherham United.

Both McVeigh and Coughlan signed on loan for the Clarets at the same time back in 2007.

Our former left-back Mo Camara,34 is another on the move having been released by Torquay United.

Finally we bring you news of two of our former players who have been put on the transfer list by financially-stricken club, Preston North End.

Darren Ferguson has decided to transfer list both Richard Chaplow and Neal Trotman amongst a number of other Preston players.

I thought someone said on here recently Chappy had been released on a free. I havent seen Chappy play for a long time so couldnt really call on him - None of the others.

Think Chaplow signed a THREE year contract in January 2008, so he does have some time to go on that. Can't see financially strapped PNE letting him go for free since he cost 'em £800,000 plus up to £500,000 for add-on apparances. WBA also have I think though a 20% sell-on clause

Presumably Stevie C is mulling over how frequently Coventry City change their managers. Has he been offered a chance to stay with Notts County?

This was latest on Cotts from BBC Sport 17th May-Notts County have offered manager Steve Cotterill an improved deal in a bid to keep him from becoming Coventry City boss, reports BBC Radio Nottingham.Cotterill, who joined Notts on a short-term deal in February and guided them to the League Two title, held talks with the Sky Blues on Monday night. The 45-year-old, who only has two weeks left on his contract, then met Notts chairman Ray Trew on Tuesday. He is now understood to be considering the two offers overnight.

None for me either although if we could turn the clock back I would have a couple, no prizes for which two ;-)

Only one I would have taken back is Glen Little but I would not take the risk and I don't think he would improve the team anyway.

Well one thing, with PNE in a lot of financial trouble (another one) and us with a fair bit of dosh, they won't be competing for the same transfer targets as us as they have in the past. Have seen a bit of Chaplow when they show the Championship matches on tv here and he's not much cop. Never fulfilled his early potential.

As much as I liked all of them when they played in C&B not sure would take any back. Although I think Glen would jump at the chance, as I was speaking to someone who was his neighbour when he played for us and are still friends with him. They reckon he wants to move back to the area.
