Coyle admits Burnley punching well above weight

Burnley boss Owen Coyle admits they're punching well above their weight in this summer's transfer market.

Burnley boss Owen Coyle admits they're punching well above their weight in this summer's transfer market.

He said: "I did have to smile when the LMA sent out the figures for the budgets from the 2007-08 season. Derby were bottom of the table and still had twice as much to spend as we do. There's no doubt we will have the smallest budget by a country mile.

"People talk about winning promotion in the £60m game, but it's not like that, you don't get that amount the next day. I soon realised what we have to work with.

"But this club doesn't want to put itself into a position like Southampton and Charlton and be over-stretched. We have put into place a plan that will serve us well for years to come."
