Rumour Mill-Burnley Squad To Get More Junior?

Rumour Mill-Burnley Squad To Get More Junior?

Eddie Howe could be about to raid West Ham again after signing striker, Zavon Hines only last week. This time their reported target is 21 year old winger and central striker, Junior Stanislas. Stanislas is another product of West Ham`s youth team having joined them at the age of ten. He had been playing youth and regular reserve team football for West Ham before joining League One side Southend United for six weeks on loan in 2008. Stanislas scored a brace on his league debut including a spectacular free kick, against Luton Town in the FA Cup second round on 29 November 2008

He went on to made his first team and Premier league debut for West Ham in March 2009 having since played over 40 games for the Hammers. Stanislas signed a new long-term four-and-a-half year`s contract in April 2009 committing him to the club until the summer of 2013. The London born winger is also half-St Lucian but has instead decided to play for England at international level and to date has picked up caps at England U19, U20 and U21 level.

The reports suggest that Burnley are prepared to sign the player on a permanent deal rather than consider a loan option and Eddie Howe`s thinking could be to use the player more as a central striker than a winger although Stanislas is recognised more for the former. Howe had hinted he might go into the loan market to find a new striker after losing both Pato and new signing Danny Ings to long-term injury but perhaps he has decided to pursue this option instead.

I actually think that Howe is going to use the loan-market.. Austin, J-Rod, Hines, Ings, MacDonald and Flethcer - thats six, 6, strikers - do we honestly need another? Seriously? I know we have to Man.City-players on loan allready, but I don't see the point of becoming a mini-Man.City with half of the squad beeing attackers :)

Good Player phil he can play on the wing or as an out and out Striker. Good holding midfielder now & Shotton, Bikey to go no offence to andre but, think his time is up at burnley fc.

Makes sense to me this signing. We need another winger in my view just for more options. But we also need cover at Striker with Pato and Ings injured so this lad is like to signings in one. Come on Eddie get him signed.

I don't see the priority for a winger, midfield and defence are my areas of most concern.
