Burnley Boss Denies Bid For Scotland
Burnley boss Owen Coyle has denied that he has made an official bid for striker Jason Scotland.
In an attempt to drum up interest in his client, the player's agent told the press last week that the Clarets had approached with a bid in excess of £1m.
Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins has also spoken to Wigan Athletic about Jason Scotland. The Latics haven't yet made a bid but they wish to be kept informed regularly about the player's situation.
Owen Coyle told Lancashire Evening Telegraph:
'At no time have we made a written offer for Jason Scotland,'
'There was a private conversation between Brendan Flood (Clarets operational director) and Huw Jenkins where they spoke about the player.
'I've always said that we are discreet and will always keep our business close to our chest.'
