Rumour Mill-Burnley Fail in Bid for Jutkiewicz

Rumour Mill-Burnley Fail in Bid for Jutkiewicz

Coventry City have turned down a £1.5million bid from Burnley for Coventry striker, Lukas Jutkiewicz according to Sky Sports.

The 22 year old only joined the Sky Blues last summer after signing from Everton for £300,000 and penning a three-year contract.

He scored against the Clarets in the 2-2 draw last season at the Ricoh Arena and finished up with a tally of nine goals in total for the season.

Southampton, his hometown club were also reported to be interested in signing the player earlier in the summer. Jutkiewicz played for the Saints as a youth between 1999-2002 before joining Swindon in 2005.

His big chance came when he moved to Everton in March 2007 for a £1m fee but he never established himself in the first team making just one appearance. He also had three spells out on loan during his time at Goodison Park at Plymouth, Huddersfield and Motherwell.

It would appear though Coventry have a figure of £3 million in mind for the player, which is a tenfold increase in the amount they paid the Toffees only a year back!

Jutkiewicz by the way is the player on the left in the Huddersfield colours! Not sure why Coventry rate him so highly after only 9 goals in 43 games (1-in 4-5)although he did get 12 in 33 for Motherwell on loan.

Think we will be priced out of that one then.

Coventry must reckon Saints have money to burn. Their owner is Swiss and the Swiss Franc is going through the roof: something like 80% up on the Pound since the Saints threw oranges and their flares at us when we went up and they went down and their new owner bought them on the cheap. But rumours that TMP has been advertising in Neu Zurcher Zeitung for claret fanciers amongst Zurich's ever wealthier gnomes have yet to be confirmed by either Alan Nixon or Daz Bentley, and would probably only have caught the eye of those who like something red with their long lunches and who probably prefer to invest in vineyards on sunnier slopes. Otherwise, my conclusion is that Coventry are having a laugh.

I don't care where they come from as long as we have a different sort of roller-coaster ride and can compete on a level playing field far more competitively than we can now. Maybe BK and the Board should have invested in the Swiss Franc rather than pleading poverty and rolling out the same old,same old excuses for their failure and lack of ambition?

£3 million was nowhere near the valuation for Eagles & Mears but we still wimped out and sold them for peanuts. 'Good bit of business' my backside!! Forced into a corner and some call it a good bit of business,give me strength! Now all we are doing is using that £3 million which should have been more, to offer peanuts again. When will this club wake up and realise that to compete it has to pay the going rate or lose out everytime. [Edited by turfmanphil]

Agree with that. Not surprised to see Eagles and Mears go and Bolton had every right to make a bid.. ...but £3 million ????

I have every confidance in the board not to pay over the odds for players who have still to prove themselves worth anywhere near that amount.
