Coyle plotting loan moves

Burnley manager Owen Coyle is preparing to allow both Besart Berisha and Steve Jones to leave the club on loan as he seeks new recruits.
The Carling Cup semi-finalists and Championship play-off hopefuls are keen to reinforce their squad as the games begin to come thick and fast.
Berisha had been on loan with Rosenborg but is now back at Turf Moor and Coyle has admitted he will let the player leave again. He also stressed that the Albanian could still have a future with the Clarets
"There have been one or two enquires to take Besart on loan for the remainder of the season and that is something we will look at," Coyle told the club's official website.
"With all due respect, he is not going to play in front of Chris Eagles or Wade Elliot at this club at the moment.
"So if we could get him three or four months, playing week in and week out, then he will come back in pre-season hopefully in a good state and ready to challenge for a place."
Jones is currently training with Bradford City with a view to a loan return to the Bantams.
Coyle went on to reveal that the club will only be recruiting in the loan market due to a lack of finances.
"Loan players are the only way forwards because we don't have the finances to go and purchase players - it is as simple as that," Coyle added.
