Clarets bid for Polish keeper is fake news
Yesterday, news surfaced via the East Anglian press that Burnley had been close to signing Ipswich Town goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski during the summer as the search continued to find a replacement for Paul Robinson.
When Bialkowski spoke with them during the summer, he said: “There is some speculation, there is some interest, but there are no firm offers. It’s hard for me to talk about it because I’m not sure how I’m going to react to that if someone comes in and offers silly money to Ipswich. Only then could we start to talk about it.”
So, it seems, we made a move for Bialkowski, who has previously played for Southampton, Barnsley and Notts County.
Not quite is the answer. Today, that same East Anglian source have backtracked on the story after Bialkowski commented in response to the story. Using Twitter, he said: “Just to make it clear, I have never had any contact with Burnley so no idea where that come from.”
Burnley went on to sign Birmingham’s Adam Legzdins and have recently brought in former Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard following the injury sustained by Tom Heaton in the home win against Crystal Palace.Share this page :
