Burnley chairman Barry Kilby has told Owen Coyle to forget about returning to his former club for players.

Kilby claims he is under no pressure to sell as the Clarets prepare for life in the second tier after one season in the Barclays Premier League. Coyle left Turf Moor in January for Bolton and he is looking to rebuild with their safety secured.

"I want to keep as strong a squad as possible to allow us to challenge again next year," said Kilby. "We do not have to sell players. Often in the past we have had to sell to balance the books and that is one big plus when we go into negotiations with players."

He added: "It took us 33 years to get back here and it's been brilliant. So let us look forward and be positive because we know we have another crack at it."
