Rumour Mill-Nathan Eccleston on loan?

Rumour Mill-Nathan Eccleston  on loan?

The Clarets have been linked with a loan move for 20 year old, Liverpool striker,Nathan Eccleston.

Eccleston came through Liverpool's youth team.He has made two appearannces for the Reds. The Newton Heath-born striker made his competitive debut in October 2009, in the League Cup match against Arsenal after coming on as a late substitute for Philipp Degen.

He then made his league debut, again as a late substitute, a few days later against Fulham.

In January 2010, he joined League One side Huddersfield Town on a month's loan and in February, Liverpool announced that the loan deal had been extended until May 2010.

After making 12 appearances for The Terriers, starting 4 times and scoring once but also being sent off once, he returned to Anfield.

Liverpool gaffer,Roy Hodgson is thought to be happy to loan out Eccleston in January in order to further his education since he is considered a future prospect at Anfield.

Premier League clubs West Brom and Wigan are also thought to be interested though along with current Championship league leaders,Queens Park Rangers

We seem to be linked with every 20 year old striker going lately, lets get this defence sorted first..

Couldn't have put it better myself,8c8! Probably one of Laws quirky ideas if any truth in this rumour

Totally agree 8c8 as we have both said before lets hear of some good solid defenders coming in since we have more holes in our defence than a pair of fishnet stockings!!

I am with you all on this. We are scoring goals but we will not win bugger all until the defence starts earning appearance money! We are doomed to another season in the Chumpionship....I am really hacked off with the team selection and defending.

How is it even possible we can be linked with anyone when we dont have a manager ........... any previouse bets are surly off until the new man can assess his team Carlisle and Alexandra to go onto the coaching team with immediate effect, new defender and midfield an absolute must grant on the bench until he can keep a clean sheet recall the beast... lets get the comp for the no 1 shirt going again .... loan out tommo and patto neither good enough these are all absolute musts in order to sharpen things up

I agree hc with putting the beast back between the sticks, however sending Thompson and Paterson out on loan would not do us any favours, That would leave us with two strikers and one who may not get his loan extended depending on the clubs and which manager we get in, Paterson on his day is the best striker we have, it was his goals that got us promoted in the first place.

Yep, IMO we have to find room for Thommo and Pato, or at least start them more often unless we are going to suddenly get some more higher-profile strikers in. Why bother its clear, defence is the area we need to shore up and also midfield to some extent!

I agree with vinrogue and don't want to hear of our interest in any more strikers We must strengthen the Mid field and the back four. Regardless of who is in goal Larson and/or Grant can only do so much without a good defensive unit in front of them. A new manager coming in will (if he is at all good ) know our shortcomings and already have a list ready for the transfer window Right now we are desperately in need of an experienced person to get us back within sight of the playoff grouping. I think that person could be Big Sam even if only to the end of the season or when we arrive in the Promised Land

I agree with that statement claretfromaway....we are in need of an experienced person to get us back.....should we be taking a chance with our future by appointing someone without the experience...which is a huge gamble or should we be learning from past mistakes and going for experience? I would want that experienced manager.
