Rumour Mill-Marney Attracting Interest

Rumour Mill-Marney Attracting Interest

Sky Sports are reporting that they understand Ipswich and Brighton are both tracking Burnley midfielder Dean Marney.

This is certainly not the first time, Dean Marney has been subject to speculation that Ipswich could have him on their radar with reports in the January window that Paul Jewell was interested in signing the former Spurs and Hull playmaker. Gus Poyet's interest though does appear to be a new link.

Marney arrived from Hull in the summer of 2010 but is now about to enter the final year of his contract at the club this summer and a number of clubs are thought to be keeping an eye on the situation.

It was a shaky start for Dean Marney this season with many Clarets fans not too fussed that he could be about to leave the club. However, he gradually fought his way back into the starting eleven and began to impress both as a defensive holding midfielder and as a more general central midfielder. He earned himself a number of man of the match awards and began to win over the hearts of the once dubious Clarets fans.

The 28-year-old has now established himself as a key member of Eddie Howe's squad and it is thought the Burnley gaffer will be keen to keep Marney in order to help the club challenge for promotion next season.

I cant really see what advantage Marney would get by moving to either Ipswich or Brighton unless of course having a bigger turnover these clubs could offer him more brass thanks to the grossly unfair FIFA Fair Play ruling!

Are we going to have any team left?? Maybe we can put out a team of kids like Coventry did against Southampton at the weekend and see how far we get next season. I suggest a one way ticket to league 1. Heh at least the accountants will be very happy.

Marney had a good second half to the season ( he didnt play much in the first half) - I would like to see him stay.

He must stay. Sick of the unfairness of football. We have to compete financially with these big City clubs, With 20,000 average gates.

As with Trippier, one to try and keep - useful in the team or as part of the squad. Not the best in any department, but pretty good of late, nonetheless. Now, Phil, where are the articles with the rumnours of who we are signing?! ;-)

I was wondering that too Barnsey! Not been linked with anybody as far as I can make out. Only thing I have seen is that Howe has his targets! Yawn. Bet they come from the lower leagues and involve Dorset!

How fickle are fans, Marneys a headless chicken let him go in the January transfer window....I read this from the start of the season and wondered wtf do they want from a one man midfield...oh sorry I forgot McCann and the support of Treacy and Wallace making it a tight midfield four or just a bag of shi@e midfield. Now we want to keep him....do we want to keep McCann too!?
