Rumour Mill-Back in for Lee Grant?

Rumour Mill-Back in for Lee Grant?

The Clarets have been looking to sign a new goalkeeper all summer and have been linked with a number of players.

Sheffield Wednesday keeper, Lee Grant was an early target according to the media and he seemed the obvious choice based on Brian Laws links with Hillsborough as their former manager.

However the interest was never confirmed and speculation moved on. Andy Lonergan was thought to be on Laws radar at one point but the Preston keeper remained firmly at Deepdale following news that our target was actuallly Fraser Forster. The Newcastle stopper who enjoyed a successful spell on loan to Norwich last season was thought to be on his way to Turf Moor on a season-long loan but talks appear to have stalled.

Brian Laws therefore has changed tack and according to Sky Sports is now understood to have set his sights on the highly-rated Lee Grant. He is now hoping to tie up a deal for the 27 year old but could face competition from Celtic and West Brom.

According to Sky Sports talks are ongoing between both clubs as they look to thrash out a fee for Grant.

I hope this is true! Sky Sports have more street cred so let's hope a deal can be struck! Better bet for me than a loan!

I agree. I would much rather sign a goalie than loan one.

Beebwww reports today that PNE have turned down three Baggie bids for Lonergan, and that Fergie Jr 'doesn't want to sell him' and values him at £20million.

Totally agree lets get a goalkeeper signed instead of a loan player far better in the long run.

Agree with the above sentiments. Couldn't see the sense in a loan deal, let's buy instead, and Grant is a good 'un.
