Second Loan McVeigh

The Clarets made their second transfer deadline signing of the day with Norwich striker Paul McVeigh coming on loan until the end of the season.

McVeigh is a Northern Ireland international, with 14 caps for his country. The 29-year old started his career with Tottenham Hotspur coming through their youth system

He then joined Norwich in March 2000 and has so far made over 200 appearances at Carrow Road, scoring 36 league goals.

Paul McVeigh can also play out wide in addition to his normal striking role.

Steve Cotterill had the following to say about the signing:

'I am delighted to have signed Paul until the end of the season.

'He is different to what we have already got and he can play out wide or up front, so we get two options.

'He is clever with the ball and I am sure he will help us out over the coming weeks.'

Paul joins fellow loanee Graham Coughlan who earlier also signed on a loan for the Clarets until season end from Sheffield Wednesday.

Been quite a busy day for Steve Cotterill, lets hope these signings can ease our relegation fears. Vital Burnely FC welcomes aboard both new loans.

Norwich fans believe McVeigh will be off in the Summer as he is out of contract. Charlton appear to be showing an early interest according to Vital Charlton site: "McVeigh was recently allowed to join Burnley on loan and is out of contract in the summer and free to leave Norwich on a free. Pardew is wasting no time in strengthening the squad and is preparing for next season even though we are unsure what league we will be playing in. McVeigh is not the only player interesting Pardew, earlier reports linked him with Freddie Eastwood of Southend. Many are expecting us to drop out of The Premiership in the summer and feel Eastwood will be a direct replacement for Darren Bent. Pardew is hoping however that Eastwood will be able to form a decent partnership with Bent and allow the addicks to become a force in The Premier League."
