The Weekly Rumour Mill Update-Haynes and Pains!

The Weekly Rumour Mill Update-Haynes and Pains!

Burnley this week were linked with just one new player not previously already been mentioned. The Clarets in addition to Blackpool and Hull City are all thought to be among those leading the chase for the 23-year-old Barnsley forward, Danny Haynes.

Haynes only arrived at Oakwell in January this year after being signed from Bristol City for an undisclosed fee by former gaffer, Mark Robbins. The former Millwall and Ipswich striker though could be ready to move on with new Barnsley manager, Keith Hill at the helm. Haynes scored seven goals from 33 appearances for the Tykes last season in the Championship although a strike rate of about one goal every five games does not look particularly impressive.

Three of our current players were also in the news this week regarding possible moves.

That old chestnut of Everton wanting to sign Chris Eagles picked up momentum again in the media with reports that Eagles now wants a move to the Premier League after all with David Moyes understood to be ready to launch another attempt to bring the former Manchester United winger to Goodison Park. Keep watching this space, I guess!

Speculation then broke that Andre Bikey was also a possible target with Steve Cotterill at Portsmouth reported to be targeting the defender in order to strengthen his back-four.

However, Cotts then seemed to put a dampener on the rumours by stating in the media:

"It`s nonsense. I don`t know where it came from. I`m not in for him," he said.

"I don`t know where it`s appeared from. There`s no truth in it whatsoever.

"If there was, the only time you`d read about it is when we`re signing them. That`s how I want to do it.
"If we`re signing them I want to speak to the manager and then let the chief execs do their bit, or let David (Lampitt) do the deal.

"So I`ve given him a couple of names and we're on with that at the moment."

Finally, Dean Marney was then linked with a possible move to Ipswich. Tractor Boys` boss Paul Jewell is understood to be a fan of the former Hull City midfielder and could be considering an approach.

It would not be a welcome approach though with Eddie Howe likely to dig his heels in.

The 27-year-old impressed Howe with his work-rate both during training and in the games last season. He was also rewarded towards the end of 2010-11 with the captain`s armband.

Ipswich though could have a sizeable budget for players this season especially now they are resigned to losing £10million-rated striker Connor Wickham this summer. That money would be a significant war-chest for the Suffolk club and Marney could be one player attracted by a move to East Anglia and a return closer to his roots (Marney was born in Barking, Essex)

How many 'nos' does it take from Cotts before it becomes a 'yes'?

Don't know much about the lad but have faith in EH, hope for good news on the McCann and Cork front. I see Eagles and Everton has surface again must be every season this happens, not really fussed if Eagles or Bikey goes as long as we get a few quid for them.

"I haven't heard anything and he is someone I want to keep at the club," Barnsley manager, Keith Hill told the club's official website. "As far as I am concerned Danny is going nowhere and no-one has approached us about him." .
