The 23-year-old, who spent last season on loan at Charlton, is reportedly close to a £600,000 switch to Turf Moor having previously been managed by Dyche during his time at Watford.

Sordell, a former England Under-21 international, hit eight goals in all competitions for the Addicks last season.

Sordell worked with Dyche at Vicarage Road during the 2011/12 campaign and it was his form that year which prompted Bolton into spending a reported £3.2million on his services as he found the net 10 times prior to his January switch.

Speaking at George's Park on Wednesday, he said: "I worked with him a lot at Watford and he’s a very good coach, a very good mentor for players and I’m not surprised Burnley did so well last season.

"All I can say is that in football nothing is guaranteed. There are reports and rumours but nothing is ever 100 per cent so I cannot say too much.

"If it comes along it would be a fantastic opportunity and I have been working at St George’s Park already in pre-season to give me the best chance to hit the ground running."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
