Clarets concede Coyle defeat

05 Jan 2010 - 14:02:48

Burnley manager Owen Coyle has told his current club that he would like to leave to take charge at Premier League rivals Bolton Wanderers.

Coyle held talks with Clarets chairman Barry Kilby on Monday evening, after it emerged that he had spoken to the Trotters about their managerial vacancy.

A Burnley club statement read: "Owen Coyle has today reaffirmed his desire to leave Burnley Football Club and join Bolton Wanderers Football Club.

"Burnley Football Club will now enter discussions with Bolton Wanderers Football Club, due to the fact that compensation between the two parties has yet to be agreed.

"There will be no further comment at this time."

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.

However, he is now set to succeed Gary Megson at Bolton, having previously played for the Trotters between 1993 and 1995.
