Coyle wants Nugent deal

Burnley manager Owen Coyle hopes to capture loan signing David Nugent permanently in January regardless of the change of circumstances at Portsmouth.

Nugent is with the Barclays Premier League new boys until the third week of January on his present deal after former Pompey boss Paul Hart farmed the former Preston striker out. The appointment of Avram Grant could mean Nugent is called back when the temporary deal expires.

"I don't know the answer from a Portsmouth side of things but I do know that from Burnley Football Club's perspective that David Nugent has been a breath of fresh air since he came here and I want him here permanently," said Coyle.

"I would love to be able to do it, if and when we can.

"If not we will look to continue the loan if that is agreeable to everybody."

Negotiations on a return to his native north-west for the full England international will depend on the Clarets' money situation during the January transfer window.

That will have nothing to do with the club's standing in the top flight, however, according to Coyle.

"It will be determined by whether there is any finance available," Coyle, whose side travel to West Ham on Saturday, said. "It is very simple.

"It will be nothing to do with league position. If there is money I will spend it, if there is not I will make the best of what we have got. That's the way I have always worked."
