No Burnley offer for Middlesbrough's Williams

Burnley boss Owen Coyle has denied making a bid for Middlesbrough's Rhys Williams. The 20 year old Australian international impressed whilst on loan at Turf Moor at the end of last season.

"I've not spoken to Middlesbrough about him," Coyle told the Burnley Citizen.

"He's a player I like, there's no doubt about that, but I'm not going to get involved with the speculation about you're after this, that and the next thing.

"What I would say is that I've already put a couple of offers in for players at different places and they were initially rejected.

"Then you move on or else you revisit it. That's where we are and Rhys Williams wasn't one of the players we made an offer for."
