Sinclair would be okay in the Championship, but I ask myself the question is he a battler? He clearly isn't, and I would rather a regular starting place went to someone who is.

Social media rumours this morning about Ravel Morrison being in talks with us.

Hmmm....

Also being linked with (alongside a number of other clubs) Reading midfielder Danny Williams.

Ravel Morrison doesn't exactly fit the "totally committed to the team, with the right attitude and leadership skills" criteria. Danny Williams has a bit of attitude, and is a strongly built player. He also has plenty of championship experience. Don't know a lot about him though apart from the fact that having learnt his football in Germany he should be sound technically.

I would love this bit of speculation to be true. I think I've rabbited on enough times about Westwood's failings to bore you guys, but my problem with him is one word .... effectiveness. He's a hard working player who zips around making safe little passes. Does he score? Does he assist? Apart from a couple of surprises at the end of last season the answer is an emphatic no.

He may be better in the championship, but I would much rather we had a tough, assisting and goal scoring midfielder taking his place.

I don't mind Westwood (I actually used to rate him highly) but wouldn't be displeased to see him go.

Can't believe we'd turn £2million for him down. The £60,000 per week pay packet makes me think the article is ballhair. He'll be on less especially after our relegation.

I think they're just trying to get a second improved offer. Silly prices are being paid for fairly ordinary players at the moment.

Wonder what kind of effect Brexit will have on football? Will it effect how we do business? Things like work permits, Bosman etc?

I think we are probably looking at a British intake this transfer window. Our French group of players were badly treated (Imo) last season and I wouldn't be surprised if they all saw their futures away from Villa.

Aye, I think from the links so far we'll be after players with Championship experience. I do hope a couple of the French guys will stick around but do doubt it.

Chris Gunter being linked today. He was a decent player a few years ago.

I'll watch him later. Very Happy

Wales have defended well so he seems to be solid. He's a capable right back who would improve us defensively, but Swansea and Middlesborough are supposedly interested in signing him as he has apparently got a 1 million release clause in his contract with Reading.

They're after Westwood and Gestede (according to media reports) and are using our old motto and sponsor: http://www.burnleyexpress.net/sport/burnley-fc/latest-news/clarets-unveil-home-shirt-for-2016-17-season-1-7982371

Do Burnley want to be us?

Burnley are a very well run club. They're certainly more entitled than we were to use the motto 'Prepared'. I wouldn't sell Gestede to them though. He's a proven Championship goalscorer.
