Burnley are to bring Ryan shotton on loan from Stoke and purchase vokes from wolves for 600k. No more business will be done after this regarding players entering Burnley. Austin will not be leaving Burnley unless 3-4 million pound asking price is reached and I still don't see him joining Huddersfield as they will only be a mid championship team at best next season. If Charlie Austin is sold, Burnley will then buy pitman from bristol city for 800k or Davis from derby for £1.1million.

Believable0 Unbelievable3

No more player to Burnley after these two? Ridiculous..priority is midfielder and we haven't signed one..only 3 central mfs at club and one of those (McCann) might be sold. We need at least one maybe 2 central midfielders.

Agree2 Disagree0

Are you a Burnley fan? Just because all the fans have seen the problems doesn't mean antyhing will change. Every fan had known about are bad deffence since we was in the prem and consided 82 goals and kept 5 clean sheets, every fan knows we need a keeper for the last 3 years too. We sold eagles and mears, who did we bring in?? See my point, the board and/or management team take time to see the obvious!

Wigan Athletic are close to striking deals with 2 players.
1. Ivan Ramis(Mallorca). Dave Whelan and co have been in mallorca for face-to-face meetings with ramis and his agent, this deal looks very possible.
2. Another name going around is Aberdeen's wonderkid Fraser Fyvie. This name has been circling round the town of wigan for.a couple of days now as rumours are that Martinez separated from the rest of the squad on there way back from pre-season tour of sweden and landed at aberdeen airport to have talks with fyvie.
Another deal is blackpool's Matt Phillips. Sky Sports News' Darmesh Seth understands that wigan have made a bid and phillips expressed and interest in linking up with his cousin Emmerson Boyce.

In regards with exits, conor sammon may go on a 6-month loan to derby county and the moses rumours are settling down. It also looks very possible that Nouha Dico may go on a season-long loan to blackpool as part of a matt phillips deal

NA made clear in an interview yesterday that any new signings will be in the GK and CB departments.
Have heard a few ever growings whispers that we will make another move for Butland now spurs interest seems to have faded along with an up and coming youngster from Europe (possibly). We will also attempt to sign a solid CB. Upson, Dann or Turner seem likeliest and dependent on how Seabourne plays on tour maybe another teenager from the continent in this position.
Clyne and Buttner signings should go through early this week, so 6 and maybe as many as 8 new signings!
Harding, Barnard, Dickson,Butterfield, possibly puncheon, possibly Seabourne on loan to go through the exit door.

There are rumours that Zola has entered talks with his former club, Chelsea, in order to sign attacking midfielder Benayoun. He is using his lasting influence at the club in order to land the veteran as Watford's new Italian owners look to sign a big name to win over the fans.

Benayoun has not denied claims, saying he is open to a Championship move after his disappointing loan spell at Arsenal last season.

Burnley are in negotiations with 3 teams for the sale of Chris McCann for a fee of around £1.5m - my understanding is that the 3 teams are Norwich (well documented), Stoke and Reading.

Howe is also open to offers for Dean Marney, Ross Wallace and Keith Treacy, the latter being allowed to leave should we receive the fee we paid, which was £700,000 (without the instalments we would have had to pay PNE - but won't).

Top striker target remains Sam Vokes, but this Norweigan bloke wants to run the rule over all players before letting anybody go.

There is nothing in the Elokobi rumour at all, but Howe would sign a left back if the right target was found.

The Latvian lads are just on trial and will play some part against Altrincham on Saturday.

No idea whether there is anything in the Enrich Mallorca rumour.

We were never in for Norwood due to relations with Manchester United being at an all-time low. If McCann goes, we want 2 central midfielders, if Marney goes then we'll look at 3.

Loans from Manchester City may also be used again, in a similar fashion to Trippier and Mee last summer.

I'm excited, lots of potential next season. UTC
