Marvin Sordell: Nearing a switch to Burnley

Marvin Sordell: Nearing a switch to Burnley

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."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
