'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Will the Cork be a Popping at Turf Moor Again?

Our former loan midfielder from Chelsea last season, Jack Cork is waiting to hear about his future at Stamford Bridge with some talk that he could be seeking a permanent move away from the current Premier League Champions rather than consider another loan stint.It is understood that Cork feels his chances of breaking into the Chelsea first team is slim in light of the competition and feels a move away could be the best option to further his career.

It is no secret that Brian Laws would be keen to bring Cork back to Turf Moor after his successful stint last season although it had been thought that only a loan would be an option.

Jack Cork would also appear to be potentially interested in returning if a deal could be struck. At the end of last season he said:

"Maybe if Burnley come in for me in the summer I`ll have to really, really think about it.'

It had also been reported that Premier League new boys, Blackpool were also interested in the player although speculation regarding the link now seems to have cooled.

It looks like the 21 year old is having to play the waiting game at Chelsea. Cork had hoped to have discussed his future by now with Blues sporting director, Frank Arnesen both in terms of a possible permanent move or loan deal but it is understood he has heard nothing with his future career now dangling in limbo.

Chelsea may also decide to hold onto Cork for their pre-season games which could scupper Brian Laws plans to sign him and have his new squad fully in place by the time they start their Singapore Tour on Saturday 17th July.

If the Clarets are still interested in the player it looks like they too will have to play the waiting game while Chelsea make up their mind about the player.

Come on Chelsea get a grip and make a bloody decision so we all know where we stand. Wonder what Chelsea would ask for if they let him go and how much we would be prepared to pay? What value would you put on him 1-3m for me.

Will other clubs be willing to pay considerably more? On this occasion we really might be up against some big spenders. Then again, does Jack want to spend some time actually playing football every week, or making occasional appearances at somewhere like Spurs? What club does he think will best develop him into the sort of young England player we have all been saying this week is not successfully coming through a superstar-import-obsessed PL? Going to Spurs certanly doesn't seem to have helped Bentley all that much, for example. Against that, worryingly, leaving Villa and going to B*lton doesn't seem to have hurt Gary Cahill, of whom we may perhaps soon be saying 'of Arsenal and England'.

For what it's worth , we should slap a bid in for 3million to test the water, and be prepared to go to 4 million if that'll secure this talented lad.

I think 3 to 4 million would be a good buy. This lad obviously has talent, he has a great engine and never stiops running. I think he has a sensible head on his shoulder too, at the end of the season he was saying he needs to ply football. If you remember his dad also came out in papers and said Jack should sign for Burnley, so he could play week in and week out. Come on Laws go for it!

No no no, I think he's a real talent. With Ballack, Deco and Joe Cole gone, I think he can fancy his chances for occasional, if not regular football. Top prospect, he could be one of the best if he continues to develop. I wouldn't sell him for less than 6-7 million if we were to sell him.
