Steven Thompson has been speaking to the local Scottish Paisley Daily Express dashing hopes that he might be interested in a move to St Mirren
"I have heard about St Mirren`s interest but, with Burnley about to get a new boss, that has changed things.
"I hadn`t been playing much recently and was on the bench a lot, so I was ready to leave but now that the old manager is away, it could be a fresh start for me.
"I need to talk to the new manager when he comes in and see what his plans are."
Thompson looks like he was ready to pack his bags and look for a new club after starting just one Championship match all season.
St Mirren manager, Danny Lennon though might not have given up total hope of signing him in the future although it doesn't look likely in the January window.
The former Rangers striker it would appear has not totally ruled out returning to his home town to play for the club he supported as a boy.
Thompson said: "If the new Burnley manager wants to use me, I`ll be happy to stay put. If not, I will have to look at other things."
This will be good news to a lot of Clarets fans who admire Thompson and feel he has not been given his chance enough this season under Laws.
The ex-Cardiff player certainly seems to have found favour with current caretaker manager, Stuart Gray. He came on from the bench to score his first league goal of the season for the Clarets in the 4-2 defeat of Sheffield United on New Year`s Day. He was then rewarded with a starting eleven place in the next game away to Reading although failed to get on the score sheet with the Clarets finally losing the game 2-1.
Hopefully the new manager will give Thompson more chance to shine but we shall have to wait and see.
