Trippier Trips over to Turf on Season-Long Loan

Burnley have another new face in their squad but still await their first permanent signing of the summer. Full back,Kieran Trippier has arrived today on a season-long loan from Manchester City.

The Bury-born 20 year old is already an England Under 21 international but has still to make his City debut.

Trippier made a one month loan move to Barnsley in February 2010 and then returned to Oakwell for a second spell on loan in August 2010 before extending this to a loan until the end of the season in January 2011.

He is widely expected to take over the right back position recently vacated by Tyrone Mears and will play with his City team mate Ben Mee in the back four. Trippier will feature tonight in the friendly against Oldham at Boundary Park.

Think we are probably going to have one of the youngest squads in the Championship! Will be interesting to see if we lack experience as the season progresses.

So, who's your starting back four for Watford? And with only room for 5 on the bench now, who's on yours for that game?

I dont really like loans I mean can they be called Burnley players, look what happend to Jack cork. I suppose he did good for us but what happens at the end of a season, you can not build a team for the future around loan players.

I would hope he is in for cover for a more experienced right-back or we could be in trouble for that area this season.

Cardiff had 8 loan players last year and made the play-offs. Capped at U-21 and with a full Championship season under his belt... stop fussing and start this lad at RB! Duff and Edgar can cover there. It's cover in midfield we need most now: one on the left, one on the right and one in the middle! Or get another striker and look on Jay Rod and Pato as your left and right covers. Presumably the focus on youth is based on a view that young players are more likely to appreciate in value than older ones. 'Proven quality' today = 'old crock' tomorrow'.

Never played for City and played on loan at Barnsley who only just beat the drop, just the kind of experience we need then to replace Mears, get a grip CP ;-)

Think its a very good move for the clarets hope he's plays RB and in stead of rushing to buy someone. We have all August to buy some new players.

One minute we're crying cos we miss out on Barnsley's Shackell, the next we're crying cos we get a player the richest club in the world thinks is too good for them?

One of the problems that Cardiff now face is losing all their loans and having to rebuild but this kid sounds a goodun! Now all we need is another Citeh player, called Vlad Weiss on the wing to replace Eagles and we could be well placed. Bit of a gamble though still all this youth when we really need to get promotion this season (to avoid FIFA Fair Play 12/13) and I would prefer some permanent signings. I sense though we are much more financially stuffed than we are trying to make out but let's see how our final squad shapes up come end Summer transfer window before making a final judgement [Edited by turfmanphil]

Of course, when we sell 2 players for 3mill we don't get all the money. Some goes to agents, for example. Some may go in sell-on obligations. Is there VAT? Presumably has to be, but are the numbers quoted incl or excl of VAT? And lawyers. There are always lawyers. But basically I think we're looking to get our wage bill down to levels we can sustain. We had more players than we needed or wanted; one we'd still like to get off the books. Getting Mears and Eagles off means we can spend more than would have been the case on new players' wages. So there was a positve as well as a negative there for Eddie. Loans have the advantage that if we don't go up, we won't have to sweat on selling players to match the parachaute at 6million lower than this year and - before anyone sends me to a lack-of-ambition-therapist - we don't have to sweat on selling players before bringing in some better ones when we do get promoted. There are disadvantages of course, but we don't want to dwell on the negatives all the time, do we?

I'm not sure couch on some of the fees if we were buying that may be different but selling? I would have thought the club purchasing would be responsible for paying fees to agents and the legal's and stuff, also Mirror reports the fee as being 2.75 not 3M. I think this will be a decent signing is he of Mears quality ? duno but city must sell Howe as a coach that will develop this squad as important as anything now we need a really experienced skippper to help organise these lads of youthful exuberance could play a major part

It's all well and good getting season-long loans in, Trippier may turn out to be fantastic and City want to sell him next year, can you see us buying him then? I doubt it you only have to look at what happened with Cork...all I am saying is I would prefer a more experienced right-back to be brought in and I don't mean buy the first one that becomes available, this lad has never played for City, Eckersley played for United and where is he at? I hope I am wrong and he does well but we should be getting more permanent signings in, maybe we will time will tell.

Another loan signing, not good enough we need to be buying proven players who want to be at Burnley and help us get back to the premiership

8clarets8 you just answered your own question. Don't you wish we had got Eckersley in on loan and not signed him for the full season. Barnsley fans in the main really rated this guy and it is clear he improved as his first full season went on. Hes a dead ball specialist, quick and raids down the right but is a suspect defender - all hallmarks of Mears' game but perhaps this one has a little more humility as he's starting out in the game. I think its very promising that we have struck something off with Man City....a club like ours need to be as pally as possible with the PL clubs around us. TMP - you have mentioned this Fifa ruling with great regularity in recent posts...as we have self imposed a sensible wage structure even during our PL season, why will it make so much difference when the new rule kicks in. Its safe to say we are not one of the leading spenders on wages anyhow and neither were Swansea, Blackpool or Norwich in their respective promotions.

The point I am making cc is we had a player on loan last season willing to join our club which let's face it not players do but we couldn't finance the deal this season, heck got no chance next season of signing any of these players up next season, you have to take a gamble and I am not asking to break the bank, this should be our best opportunity or maybe last of trying to go for it not letting players go 8 up to press and 2 loans in and I fully understand getting rid of the high earners and the oldies but you have to ask yourself why did Eagles and Mears really go because we are not showing any ambition, loan signings are not the answer.

I have to agree with 8Clarets8, getting rid of old high earners like Iwelumo and Cort (hopefully) to lower the wage bill is a positive move as they are not investments for the future. But why aren't we making any full time signings, we will only be in the same position next year with big gaps in our squad when the loanies move on. Someone mentioned the Cardiff situation which proves this is the case, I'm all for loan players for cover but not first team replacements. Getting seriously fed up of the constant speculation on transfers though, it really does get annoying after weeks without signing anyone...

We will be in a worse position next season YC when the new rules come in, our loan signings will have gone we won't be able to afford them...we are missing a big opportunity here take a gamble it's not even a gamble when you look at it, spend some money get some decent players in, Eagles and Mears may have not done one had we done so, the board must have seen it coming everyone else did...I ask one thing can we see us getting promoted because I can't...we are to busy trying to buy the sparrow hawk and trying to build a university and forgetting where the real money comes from the people who go on week in week out, glad I haven't the money to afford a season ticket!!!

You have highlighted a lot of points I agree with, in fact I agree with all of them. I really do not understand the logic of creating a football university with fee's in the region of 9,000 a year with no guaranteed job or prospect afterwards... It's not surprising that it isn't taking off! I posted a few days ago that the directors need to get a grip and realise that it is a sport firstly and a business secondly. We have missed out on Emmanuel-Thomas, he has gone to Ipswich. Oh well another target slips the Burnley net... It really worries me the direction our club is going.

Why build a university when there is one just been built across the town pretty sure you could get the same qualifications there, Kilby is going to take a back seat pretty sure he would not have sanction Eagles and Mears to go to Bolton of all places, I saw when kilby's face when Coyle went he was gutted like the rest off us, having read Floods book this week "yes I endeared it" through peer pressure ;-) add to him John B these guys know nowt about football, Property maybe "questionable" I really fear I do.

I am a bit cautious about Kilby tbh, It makes you wonder why he wants out now people are asking about money issues. I do not know accurate facts and figures regarding his transactions with our club but to my speculation he owned then rented the ground to us then sold it back to us when we were promoted. Now he wants out after he has repaid his loans, just seems he is getting his money and running to me. I may be completely incorrect with this, its just the view I have attained after reading various online articles over the years. Flood may not know much about football but at least he has invested in the playing squad most notably when we needed to before our promotion season. We need money putting in our club now and Kilby has already started packing his bags.

I see where you are coming from YC but would we be in this place without him? not so sure? I agree first thing we should have done when we got promoted is buy the ground back before anything else, you can live of interest alone, seems to me to many people have got to many fingers in the pie and want to take,take,take...without a care for the common people who keep the club going... invest or it will all go tits up.

Tend to agree with tmp's comment above regarding the finances. I think they're probably worse than we'd like to think which is why we didn't sign Cork and anyone else who can be classed as 'proven quality'. Personally, I can't fault Kilby in any of this, he's done his best and it's not his or any of the directors' fault that football has gone apes**t with regards to finance. I've still got faith in Howe though, and I think he could well do the business for us this season, and he'll do that by getting the players to believe in themselves much the way some other bloke did a couple of seasons ago. UTC forever and ever.
