The Daily Express last week suggested the Clarets were seeking to sign Cardiff goalkeeper, Tom Heaton in the summer.
Heaton still seems to be very much in the Bluebirds plans though, and indeed played in the Carling Cup final at Wembley in the defeat against Liverpool on Sunday.
He was also in superb form managing to save a Gerrard penalty in the penalty shoot out before Cardiff lost out in the end 3-2.
The 25 year old former England Under 21 international came through the ranks at Manchester United but never made his full debut for the Red Devils spending most of his time on the United books out on loan.
He had spells on loan at Swindon, Royal Antwerp, Cardiff, QPR, Rochdale and Wycombe.
United released the keeper in the summer of 2010 and he joined Cardiff for a second time in July 2010 this time penning a permanent deal. Under new manager, Malky Mackay, Heaton though found himself as cover for David Marshall in the Championship but has mangaed to impress in this season's Carling Cup competition.
The Bluebirds of course also knocked out the Clarets in the 4th round stage of the competition beating them 1-0 in the Cardiff City Stadium before progressing ultimately to the final.
The big question of course for Clarets fans would be which keeper Heaton would replace if he signed for the club. We already have three recognised keepers in the squad. Lee Grant is currently the first choice but he is prone to spilling and parrying errors. Brian Jensen must be getting to the stage where he might threaten to resign again whilst Jon Stewart has yet to make his first team debut. Stewart was understudy on the bench when Jensen was out injured earlier in the season but he never managed to feature.
So why not tell us what you think about this rumour and whether you think we need another keeper. If you do, who do you think will make way?
