Coyle won't rush transfers

18 June 2009 08:12
Burnley boss Owen Coyle claims he is in no rush to strengthen his squad ahead of their first taste of Premier League football. Coyle has conceded that the Clarets will have the smallest budget in the top-flight following their promotion via the Championship play-off final last month. But despite also having a comparatively small squad, the Burnley boss is refusing to be rushed into making signings ahead of the August kick-off. "We will have the smallest budget in the league by far but that doesn't faze me," he told the club's official website. "In the Championship we were at the lower end of the scale, so that won't be a big issue for me. "I'm prepared to work with that, making sure I get players who are the best value for money and willing to represent this football club with all the heart, endeavour and quality that I ask from my group of players. "I have already put a couple of offers in for players at different places and they were initially rejected, so you either have to move on, or revisit it, that's where we are. "We will continue down that route and will do out best for Burnley Football Club. There is no panic, we have to make sure it's the right type of players we bring in for the longevity of this club. "We have to make sure that we are very selective about who we go after and that they are the right type of player to come into the group I have. "Those players have served the club so well and we have to make sure that whoever we bring in complements that squad. "I will make sure when spending money that the players we sign are ones for the future and who we can improve as we have done with the ones we signed last year."
