Burnley will be encouraged by the news that Wigan forward Nick Powell has rejected the latest contract offer he has received from the Championship club, alerting any interested club to his potential availability according to The Sunday Mirror (7th Oct, Page 65).
Powell 24, has started the Championship season well chipping in with four goals in 12 appearances for The Latics, but Burnley will face competition for Powell’s signature amid interest from both Celtic and Brighton & Hove Albion.
So, is Powell right for Burnley?
It would seem like an odd move on paper.
He isn’t the type of player that suits Burnley’s style of play and might not work out as intended.
It would have its advantages, however, as he would be an option to link the midfield and the front line up and would give the Clarets a little more creativity on the ball.
It remains to be seen if it would be a good signing but, why not go for him?
Yes, if they can.
Such is the lure of the Premier League that Burnley is probably a bigger draw than Celtic these days.
Powell might prefer a move to an attacking side who play football on the deck and through the thirds, but beggars can’t be choosers.
If the chance comes of stepping up, take it.
I’m not so sure about this.
Powell has done well at this level, but just look at Matej Vydra – he was the division’s top scorer last season but he hasn’t really made an impact at Turf Moor so far.
