On-loan striker David Nugent is keen to stay at Burnley - at least until the end of the season.

Saturday's 1-1 draw against Bolton saw Nugent score his third goal for the club after arriving from Portsmouth, where he was out of favour.

Nugent's time at Turf Moor is due to end next month but he said: "We have talked about a loan deal until the end of the season. Hopefully something will be sorted out sooner rather than later. I am enjoying it here and scoring goals."

Nugent could now retain his place in the team when Burnley face his boyhood idols Everton at Goodison Park.

Manager Owen Coyle was refusing to give out any clues, however, as to his starting XI but re-affirmed he wanted to retain the player's services.

He said: "David is in my ear every week about starting. He is a great lad.

"Being an Everton supporter he would love to be out there. He has certainly not done himself any harm with his goal against Bolton.

"He knows I would love to keep him and my opinion of him. I hope we can extent the loan or maybe even sort out a permanent deal as we want to bring young hungry players to the club. It is up to the powers that be to sort it out."
