Rumour Mill-Tyrone for Bolton? Mears the Pity
Bolton manager Owen Coyle looks set to make a £400,000 move for Tyrone Mears according to the Sunday Mirror today.
Mears' contract still has a year to run but there is no sign yet of Burnley wanting to extend the contract at this stage although it is thought the club are keen to retain him.
The right back has missed just two league games since signing for the Clarets in June 2009 and would appear to be vital to Eddie Howe's plans. £400,000 would certainly be seen as a derogatory bid, at least I hope it would and indeed the speculation itself could be dodgy. Sloppy journliasm is all too easy these days and linking Burnley players with former gaffers, would seem the easiest way to fuel rumours in the first place. Cue Coyle denying interest!
