It is now almost inevitable with Eddie Howe preparing Clarets fans for the worst that Jay Rodriguez could be leaving in the summer.
Jay Rod currently injured with a 'wear and tear' hip and groin problem may already have played his last game for the Clarets unless he can feature in the six games of the season remaining.
Eddie Howe recently said:
'I'm sure there will be clubs looking at him so we'll wait and see on that one,' said Howe. 'I'm sure it will be difficult to keep hold of him, but we would love to.
Any Premier League team that watches our games and does their homework will see what a season he's had.
They'll look at his age, his goalscoring record and all of the attributes that he's got.'
Clarets fans are probably resigned to losing him but they won't be happy with news today that Owen Coyle is interested in bringing him to the Reebok for next season.
It is understood that Coyle is eyeing the Clarets marksman along with rival Everton gaffer David Moyes.
No doubt our leading goal-scorer with 21 goals in all competitions this season is already on the radar of other Premier League clubs. Newcastle, for example wre also reportedly interested in the striker in the January window. Nowrich were also sniffing about!
If we are to lose Jay Rod, I am sure Clarets fans will be hoping he signs for a club in the top half of the Premier League table.
Bolton, would certainly not be in that league and they are still of course fighting for their top flight lives. If they fail in their mission and Bolton are relegated, you just can't see Jay Rod a local boy and 'one of our own' jumping ship just to play for another Championship side next season!
Oh well,it is going to be a very interesting close season by looks of it. Let's hope it's one where we gain more than we lose!!
