Wallace linked with Burnley move

01 July 2010 01:24
There was wild speculation a few days ago that the Clarets were interested in Preston wide man Ross Wallace but, on investigation, those rumours appeared to have little substance at the time. However, with Brian Laws saying we are moving on from the Andrew Driver bids, we've again been linked with the Scot who started his career with Celtic.He was one of a number of players who made the journey from Glasgow to Sunderland in August 2006 as new manager Roy Keane recruited former team mates from Celtic.He was influential during their promotion season but then fell out with Keane who placed him on the transfer list. Burnley, under the previous manager, tried to sign him but we were turned down and in January 2009 he moved to Preston, initially on loan.A goal from Preston, one of nine league goals he's scored for them, delayed Burnley's confirmation into the play offs by a week a year ago, and he's been a regular for North End in a season and a half, claiming no fewer than thirteen yellow cards last season as he featured in all but five of their games.It remains speculation, but with Laws having spoken out on the Driver situation it may well be Wallace where our attentions are now.
