"Kenwyne has pace and strength and scores goals and he is going to get better. He has so much potential. If Kenwyne is fit we have got a great targetman, potentially as good as anyone in the country," Burley told a fans' forum.

"I want to keep Kenwyne but with all this speculation it has not been easy for him. Kenwyne is not the finished article but I want to keep him. You can never say never but I am determined to hang on to him.

"It will be totally my decision - we don't need to sell him. The club is in a good financial position. We were able to spend £1milion on Wayne Thomas because we brought in £1million for Pele - that's how we did it. I told Kenwyne I want him to stay and I am sure he will get his head round that."
