Eagles To Leave
It's been coming for a while: Chris Eagles is, painfully, not good enough to hold down a place at Manchester United - but far too talented to be content with languishing in the Reserves.
It was rumoured that Championship clubs would like to sign the 22-year-old winger and now Burnley admitted their interest.
'It`s a bit complicated, in that there is another club interested in him, but he has real quality,' Clarets booss Owen Coyle told the Lancashire Evening Telegraph.
'We had a terrific meeting with him and his representative, obviously with permission from his club, because there would be a big fee involved in that.'
It will not be the biggest news of the summer if he leaves but he will depart with my best wishes: after all, we won't forget his goal at Everton in April 2007, will we?
