In response to an article in today’s national media, Burnley Football Club would like to clarify its position regarding January transfers.
As deadline day approached, Burnley had identified its main targets.
Two of those deals were actually agreed, both between clubs and the players, but regrettably the selling clubs decided not to proceed at the last minute, leaving Burnley Football Club looking to recruit elsewhere to add to the squad before Monday’s 11pm deadline.
The email suggested in the newspaper article was sent as a general sweep of selected agents, who naturally are best placed to become aware of any last minute movements in the market regarding their players.
These often occur late in the day through the ‘domino effect’ of last minute deals, where players are suddenly deemed surplus to requirements.
In closing, the club has continually been open with supporters about how challenging the market is for a club that continues to act in a financially responsible manner.
Burnley Football Club is always looking for players to complement the squad and will leave no stone unturned in that quest.
