Burnley chairman Kilby confident of Coyle transfer market success

Burnley chairman Barry Kilby is confident of manager Owen Coyle finding quality in the summer market.

He said: "Owen was used to working with a limited budget and had operated in the lower divisions in Scotland.

"So he knew what he was coming to at Burnley and that was a big factor when we appointed him the first place.

"Owen came in from left field when he joined the club but he has proved his worth. I am delighted we have a man of his potential.

"He is a brilliant character, his optimism, the way he has picked us up, is what we wanted. He was not the favourite to get the job but he impressed us and taken us forward."
