Burnley boss Brian Laws blames Hearts stubborn attitude over the sale of Andrew Driver for the collapse of talks.

The Clarets have had two bids for the 22-year-old rejected by the Tynecastle club, who are thought to want £3.5million up front.

Laws told BBC Radio Lancashire: "It's dead, they're being stubborn - it's too many things I feel uncomfortable with."

"It's not just Driver," he said. "There are other players and we're waiting for those to fall into place.

"We're hoping to make rapid progress over the next 48 hours and we'll be happy with either one that we get.

"A lot of clubs think, because we are fairly comfortable with money, they just pluck a number out of the sky and that's what we will pay.

"We are experienced people in football and we know the values of players and what we are comfortable with.

"We are not going to throw all the money we have away and the Driver situation was getting out of hand."
