Rumour Mill-When the Cammy Bell Tolls?

Rumour Mill-When the Cammy Bell Tolls?

Could be Burnley be seeking the services of a new goalkeeper? Reports in the Sun suggest Sean Dyche might be looking to bring Kilmarnock keeper Cameron Bell to Turf Moor. If true they could face competition with Bolton who have also been linked.

The 26 year old Scotland international with just one cap so far, was born in Dumfries and as a youth played for his local club Queen of the South. He was also involved previously at Annan Athletic. Bell moved from Queens to Kilmarnock in 2002 and has been at Rugby Park ever since apart from a couple of loan spells at Montrose in 2007 and Queen of the South in 2008.

He has since made 88 appearances for Killie although the keeper was sidelined earlier this season with a wrist injury.

Does have some logic if the intention is to keep Grant and release Jensen. Stewart third string?

I know a lot about him, and have seen him play on numerous occasions and I can tell you he is a quality goalkeeper. Kilmarnock fans rate him really highly, and I think he would be a great addition to the squad and good competition for Grant.

Jensen I am certain will leave. I also think Stewart will leave. Grant is out of contract I think and therefore may also leave ( or probably have to take a drop in wages). We could need two new keepers come the summer!

Both Grant and Jensen are out of contract in summer! I honestly don't think Grant is that bad though and think he get's too much stick. Not sure what will happen to Stewart. We will certainly need one new keeper

This season I agree Phil. I think Grant has done quite well this season - in the summer ( as I posted on here many times) I would have moved him on. However - As a post PL signing, I would anticipate he will be on one of the squads larger wages - he would probably need to take a drop to stay.

LT are saying-'Unless new deals can be agreed, first team regulars Grant, McCann, Wallace, Marney, Paterson and Michael Duff would all be allowed to leave on a free transfer in the summer' and 'But anyone who manager Sean Dyche wishes to keep for next season would be expected to take a financial hit – possibly as much as 40 per cent – as the club continues to strive to drive down the wage bill' Speaking at the club’s Annual General Meeting in December, re-elected director Clive Holt said: “The next few years are going to be very challenging with the Financial Fair Play rules starting to bite, but I am sure we will have plans and ways of doing it. “In some ways it will work against us, but then in other ways itwill be good because we will have to work within our means and punch above our weight. “We have paid good wages, and players will have to have realistic expectations. “It’s a difficult path for the joint chairmen to guide us through.”

All very much as I predicted when complaining we did nowhere near enough to try and stay in the top flight in the first place. With the club set to receive its final Premier League parachute payment this summer, the focus remains on making cutbacks, unless they can find a route back to the top flight.
