Rumour Mill- Burnley's One Last Eaves Drop?

Rumour Mill- Burnley's One Last Eaves Drop?

Burnley are awaiting the loan market to open on Thursday next week with Clarets fans hoping we can add to the squad following a disappointing summer transfer window which closed on Tuesday night.

Stoke defender, Ryan Shotton has already been linked with a loan move to Turf Moor after the club failed to bring him in on a permanent deal during the transfer window.

The latest speculation regards a possible loan move for 19 year old, Bolton striker, Tom Eaves.

Burnley were linked with a move for him during Laws tenure last August after being in a battle with Bolton to sign him from Oldham Athletic. In the end not unsurprisingly he joined the Premier League outfit but Owen Coyle has still to give him his first team debut.

Eaves joined Oldham Athletic's Centre of Excellence as a youth player at Under-15 age group having previously played for Crewe Alexandra at youth level. He made just 15 appearances for Oldham before joining Bolton for an undisclosed fee, thought to be in the region of £350,000 on the 12th August 2010. Coyle had probably been impressed with the lad after he scored a hat-trick against his Bolton side in a pre-season friendly in July 2010; one month before he moved to the Reebok after agreeing a three-year deal.

A 19 year old loan striker, not played once for Bolton and only 15 for Oldham? Doesn't seem logical. Could be cover I guess and a replacement for Ings until fit.

I can only summarise this as lazy journalism. I doubt and hope we wont be in the market for yet another striker!

Yep, I too am struggling to see why we might be remotely interested in another striker. Fair enough if they intended to bring him in on a permanent for the future but a loan? Only thing I can think of is that he is hacked off at Bolton and might be tempted by Burnley if the face fits and Burnley like the look of him via a loan spell first

This has got to be a joke, he wont even make the bench. Mind you he is 19 right age for Eddie Kid.
