Rumour Mill-It Never Haynes But It Pours!

Rumour Mill-It Never Haynes But It Pours!

It was only on Saturday, that Burnley FC media manager, Darren Bentley was assuring listeners to Clarets Player during the Derby game that Jay Rodriguez was NOT FOR SALE!!

There was of course the usual proviso that we would always consider silly money though with that being suggested to be in the region of plus £8m!

Daft rumours have circulated during the week on dubious rumour mill websites that the Saints had made up to a £5.75m bid for Rodriguez. Some have even suggested a cash/player deal with 25 year old Saints winger, Jason Puncheon thrown in!

Most Clarets fans though will be hoping there is absolutely no truth in any of these rumours but sady tonight there was more fuelling of the speculation.

It would appear that Burnley have made an enquiry for Barnsley striker, Danny Haynes and not because they want to add to their striking department but according to reports because they fear they could lose Jay Rodriguez to Southampton.

We have been linked with Haynes though on and off all summer so what has changed?

Well,it seems that the 23 year old former Millwall and Bristol City goal-scorer was dropped to the bench for the first time this season with the reason being that Burnley were reportedly close to sealing a deal.

Haynes has scored six goals in 24 games for Barnsley so far and played every minute of every game except for the last 30 minutes of the 2-1 win at Reading last weekend.

He was however then surprisingly dropped to the bench for Saturday's goal-less draw at Millwall in favour of new recruit Danny Drinkwater

Tykes manager Keith Hill unusually decided to adopt a 4-5-1 formation for the first time this season or at least that is one of the reasons given for dropping Haynes.

I suspect though if there is any truth in Eddie Howe's interest, it is more likely to be because Burnley have failed in their attempt to sign Junior Stanislas from West Ham rather than any concern over losing Rodriguez! At least I bloody well hope so!

Hill has continued to deny that they would consider selling Haynes but it remains to be seen whether they would consider offers should Burnley make an official bid.

I don't believe for one minute that Jay Rod will be sold to Southampton for the £4m to up to the ca £6 million reported. Surely the club would not be that stupid and would hold out for at least £8-10 million if money-bags Southampton have that sort of cash to burn?! There could be a Haynes link though considering we have lost Ings and Pato to injury and may be struggling to capture Stanislas [Edited by turfmanphil]

Please, please BFC tell Saints to go and jump in the Solent whatever they offer. A settled squad means everything to players and fans alike and I do not want to be constantly worried about what will happen when the next window opens, prefer to be anticipating who we are going to sign to strengthen the squad.

The sad thing is, Jay Rod will have just one year left on his contract come the summer. and will more than likely be sold to avoid him leaving on a Bosman the following summer If we are prepared to accept the Board's stance on these matters then it will be the same old sell/good bit of business mentality as usual no matter what affect it has on the fans or indeed team's morale

Dear Phill if we bring in Haynes & another good striker @ the moment Austin is on song & hines will start to show us what he can do, If we get 5 - 6 million for Jay this would make sence. I have cached football & in my oppinion Jay is not our best striker if we get the money we then look @ centre half Shotton & Quality midfield man, a los of the clubs in the championship have bigger squads but if you look @ ours with a couple or three aditions we have more quality. just my opinion

There will always be a case for selling our best players financially no matter what affect it has on the team, good or bad because we are in a financial pickle and shouldn't be by now. Sadly because we cant get out of this financial rut that will always happen until there is a Board change and someone truly does believe it when they say 'We dont have to sell' Jay Rod is NOT FOR SALE..oh aye?
