Burnley: No Bolton approach yet for Coyle

Burnley tonight insisted Bolton have made no official approach for their manager Owen Coyle.

According to local reports, Trotters chief Phil Gartside is keen to have Coyle in place before next weekend's Premier League trip to Sunderland.

Wanderers are expected to step up their bid for Coyle by making an official approach to Burnley to speak to their former player on Monday.

However, on Sunday the Clarets refuted suggestions their north-west rivals have already moved to make the Scot their new manager, following the sacking of Gary Megson.

Gartside, though, still appears ready to pounce for a manager whom he recommended for the Burnley job two years ago.

Bolton have refused to comment on speculation regarding a successor to Megson, although betting has now been suspended by some bookmakers on the appointment of Coyle.

The Clarets have also kept a low profile with Coyle skipping the routine post-match press conference after yesterday's FA Cup third round win at MK Dons.

Coyle's assistant Sandy Stewart said Coyle was catching a plane to Scotland but his non-appearance did nothing to dampen speculation about his Turf Moor future.

Coyle took over at Burnley two years ago and led them back into the top-flight for the first time in 33 years, earning praise for the style of football he imposed.
