Rumour Mill-Green Shoots for Clarets?

27 year old Republic of Ireland international, Paul Green has been linked with a move to Turf Moor.

It is understood that Brian Laws has made enquiries about the former Doncaster Rovers player but as yet nothing more.

Green started his professional career as a trainee with Doncaster Rovers in 2001 He made his first team debut in a 2-2 draw with Northwich Victoria in the Conference in March 2002.

His contract with Doncaster came to an end in the summer of 2008 and despite being offered a new deal, Green instead opted to leave the Keepmoat and join Derby County on a free transfer.

Green signed a three-year contract with the Rams and earned his first international cap for the Republic of Ireland only this month(May 2010)

His debut for the Republic of Ireland was the 2-1 win against Paraguay at the RDS Arena on the 25th May when he came on from the bench in the second half. Three days later Green made his first international start against Algeria, scoring his first international goal in the 32nd minute in a 3-0 win

A central midfielder, Green can also play at right-back if required.

Although Burnley only appear to have made an enquiry at this stage, should they wish to progress further they could face competition from Celtic. The SPL club are also reported to be interested. According to the News of the World,Celtic are preparing a 1.5million bid.

Does not sound like things have progressed that far with this link and one wonders if we are still interested having signed Marney. Might be worth following up if we fail to loan Cork?

Thats should be Burnley main objective to get better quality in the midfield and more competition for places.

Green is a good player - and plays the sort of fotball we want to be playing!

Sounds good to me, Dale. If I were a player, I would choose us over Celtic - we have a chance of playing in a "proper" Premier League, too!

I am also of the opinion that this sounds good. Midfield needs an injection of real competition for places. I have also mellowed on Nugent and think for less than 2m I would have him back, if Fletch takes his agents advice and secures his financial future with a move this summer to a PL club south of Burnley!
