Burnley’s lack of funds could scupper Kilgallon transfer

Matt KilgallonOwen Coyle has admitted that the poor state of Burnley’s funds could see the club miss out on a host of transfer targets including Sheffield United’s Matthew Kilgallon.

Coyle has stated his desire to add depth to his squad after bringing in 9 players during the summer but he feels that he does not have the money to bring in even Championship level players, especially after breaking the bank and the club’s transfer record to bring Steven Fletcher to the club from Hibs for £3m.

“We have the smallest squad in the division. We have got players who are ready to give everything they’ve got. But we have a budget which is not even a Championship budget. If I go and try to sign players from the Championship I might struggle.”
