Come in Number 23?-Mystery Signing?

Come in Number 23?-Mystery Signing?

One of our eagle-eyed Clarets spotted that in fact we only had 22 players named on the Official Site despite the club saying Eddie Howe had named 23 players for the South West tour that begins today.

So is there a mystery man amongst the party. He who dare not be named? Could we have signed a new player and he is being kept under wraps until an official announcement or can the club simply not add up?

Have they forgot to add Leon Cort or remove Chris Iwelumo who signed for Watford today?

Well by all accounts, media manager, Daz Bentley is not allowed to name the 23rd player so the plot thickens although I suspect it will only be a trialist

Well, Howe has god rid of two attackers, two midfielders and two defenders (three with Cort, if he leaves). In came a defender. I personally imagine a striker and a winger as reinforcements.

Anyone know where they're based while down here in the SW? I could maybe try to peek through the hedge, or hire a microlite? Or I've heard there are several recently unemployed phone hackers looking for new business? Maybe one of them can get the story?
