Clarets keen to move quickly

Burnley are hopeful of being able to bring in a new manager to replace Bolton-bound Owen Coyle within the next two weeks.
Coyle is poised to take charge at the Trotters, with the Clarets unhappy at losing the services of the man who guided them back to the top-flight of English football last season.
Operations director Brendan Flood explained: "I think we would like to have the same recipe again as much as possible and there are choices that we can consider.
"We have just got to meet them and make sure they have got the chemistry, the right feeling for Burnley and hopefully make a decision within the next two weeks.
"The January window puts extra pressure on everybody. We will be looking for somebody who can make a difference quickly.
"We are very happy with our squad and if we only made one or two additions nobody would complain.
"But we want to give any new manager the opportunity to look slightly beyond that and see what he wants to do.
"There are always young, hungry, winning managers who want to do something and make their name. I think there will be a lot of interest.
"That gives us much more choice and hopefully we will get someone with a real ambition for Burnley and the commitment to drive the club forward in the short term.
"If we can attract the right guy that might add something to what we've got here, who knows where that might lead."
