Clarets agree fee for Mears

24 Jun 2009 - 15:32:13

Burnley have had a bid accepted for Derby County defender Tyrone Mears.

Mears, 26, spent least season on loan at Marseille following a controversial switch to France in August 2008.

The former West Ham United and Preston North End right-back left Derby without the permission of then manager Paul Jewell and headed for a trial with Marseille before the two clubs subsequently reached an agreement over his future.

However, Mears' season in France was largely a frustrating one as he made just four league appearances.

He returned to Pride Park last month but Derby have now agreed to sell him to the Premier League new-boys for an undisclosed fee.

"The two clubs have agreed a fee and talks with a view to making the transfer permanent will take place when the player and his representative return from holiday," confirmed Clarets boss Owen Coyle.
