Bolton to make their move for Burnley boss

Published Add your comment

Bolton will make an official request to Burnley to speak to their manager Owen Coyle about the current vacancy at the Reebok Stadium on Monday, sources have told Press Association Sport.

The Clarets are bracing themselves for an imminent approach from Wanderers chairman Phil Gartside, whom Press Association Sport understands has already sounded out Coyle about a move at a meeting in Glasgow on Sunday.

It appears Coyle is keen to return to the club where he enjoyed two and a half seasons as a player but for that to happen Bolton will have to come up with more than £3million in compensation. That clause was inserted into the Burnley manager's contract when he signed a 12-month extension to his existing three-year deal in the summer, having turned down boyhood club Celtic.
