Re: ARTICLE: Pre-season kicks off in Poland for the under-23s

I note that Agyei does not appear to be in Poland or Porugal. I realise that he is out of contract but does this indicate that he is not likely to be coming back to Burnley?

Re: Tom Heaton

Interesting that Villa are bidding for Heaton and not Hart who also has only one year left on his deal.

I wonder if it is starting as number one or money that is stalling Tom signing a new deal with us as, according to the article, there is an offer from our club on the table?

He had a very serious injury which is possibly one of the reasons why Southampton shipped him out. If I remember rightly for a mere £12 million.

If the club do sign him it should be for around that fee and a short two year deal.
