Rumour Mill-Clarets Bid for ex-Loan Whittingham

Rumour Mill-Clarets Bid for ex-Loan Whittingham

The Clarets could be intending to bring Peter Whittingham back to Turf Moor but this time on a permanent basis if speculation in the Sun today is true.

The paper states that Burnley have bid £1.75 million for their former loan player who now plays for Cardiff City.

The central midfielder who can also play out on the wing scored 25 goals last season for the Bluebirds helping them reach the Championship play-off final at Wembley where they were defeated by Blackpool.

Steve Cotterill signed Whittingham on loan back in 2005 when the player was on Aston Villa's books. He played just seven games for the Clarets but failed to make a big impression.

How times have changed!

In January 2007 Villa decided to release the player and he was transferred to Cardiff City for a reported fee of £350,000.

Since that time he has looked very impressive scoring 32 goals in about 130 appearances for the Welsh club.

Now 25, Whittingham is also a former England Under 21 International.

I hope this one is true and we seal a deal! Really impressed with him now after the disappointment of his loan spell back in 2005

20 goals from the left hand side of midfield - Not seen since David Eyres? :-)

Will Cardiff want to sell? I guess they've got to work out where the balance lies for them between paying off those of their remaining debts that are due, and the new part-owner wanting to put more money into a promotion-challenging team. They have paid off the tax, to end the winding up order. But they admit they have other debts needing to be settled.

Now this will be a cracking signing if it comes off. A very infuential and effective part of the Cardiff squad, and will only be sold if Cardiff desperately need the money. I fully expect the £1.75 million bid to be rejected, with nothing less than £2.5m or more being even entertained.

Cardiff have rejected a bid believed to be in the region of £1.7million from Burnley for Whittingham.
