Burnley kill Kilgallon talk

Published Add your comment

Burnley have revealed they have made enquiries for Sheffield United defender Matthew Kilgallon but will not be pursuing their interest.

It had been claimed this week the former Leeds player had rejected a move to Turf Moor but a fresh report this morning suggested the Clarets were prepared to double the 26-year-old's wages.

A statement read: "Burnley Football can confirm an interest in signing Sheffield United central defender Matthew Kilgallon. However, the club is not prepared to meet the agent's excessive wage demands for his player."

The statement added: "Contrary to a national newspaper report, the club has no intention of breaking its wage structure and disrupting the togetherness of a united squad.

"Burnley Football Club will instead look elsewhere for reinforcements."
