Rumour Mill-Gillett, The Best a Manager Can Get?

Burnley have been linked with an interest in Doncaster midfielder Simon Gillett.

Doncaster manager Sean O'Driscoll could be forced to sell the player with finances tight at the club and it is understood 300,000 could be enough to tempt the club to let him go. Burnley could face competition though for the 25 year old with Watford and Leeds also reportedly interested.

Gillett started his professional career with Southampton in 2005 after coming through their youth system but spent most of his time at the club away from St Marys on loan. He had loan spells at Walsall, Blackpool (twice), Bournemouth, Yeovil and finally in 2009 Doncaster Rovers before joining them on a permanent basis on a free transfer 12 months later after agreeing a two year contract.

We do need a solid midfield man who can hols and distribute the ball. we need to look @ two players in this position, one - striker - one slightly more experienced centre half 25 - 28 yrs old Kilgallon example

I'd broadly agree with Albmaleaf's assessment, as long as the end result stops our habit since the days of Cotts of leaking cheap goals.

Doncaster have a poor team now if results of the last 12 months are anything to go by, so is this lad their best player, We dont want a panic buy.

I think there is better on the market than this guy, especially with the money we should have to spend.
