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."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
