Bolton face wait for Coyle

05 January 2010 06:57
Owen Coyle's future will remain unclear for a further 24 hours after Burnley pledged to take their time over discussing his position at Turf Moor following an approach from Bolton Wanderers. On Monday evening, the Clarets confirmed that the 42-year-old Scot had held talks with Bolton about the managerial vacancy at the Reebok Stadium. The former Bolton striker had previously denied being interested in the post, which is up for grabs following the recent sacking of Gary Megson. Reports claim that the two clubs had agreed a compensation package in the region of £3million for Coyle, but Burnley have revealed that a decision over his future will not be made for another 24 hours. "Senior Burnley Football Club officials have, on Monday evening, held detailed talks with first team manager Owen Coyle over his future at Turf Moor," confirmed a club statement. "As a result of these talks over Coyle's future with his current employers, both parties have decided to take a further 24 hours to digest the information shared before making any further announcement. "There will be no further comment during this time from Burnley Football Club or Owen Coyle." Coyle has been in charge at Turf Moor for just over two years and helped the club gain promotion to the Premier League last season.
