Three lower league managers are being lined up by Burnley to succeed Owen Coyle.

The Sun says Coyle's decision to join Bolton Wanderers has come as a big surprise to the Turf Moor board as they were confident of keeping him.

Burnley have begun to make plans for a new manager with Blackpool's Ian Holloway, Swansea boss Paolo Sousa and Leeds chief Simon Grayson in their sights.
