Fight on for Driver

Last updated : 14 July 2008 By Tony Scholes
Craig Levein left the job at Tynecastle in October 2004 and incredibly Laszio is the eleventh different manager to take charge of the SPL club since then, and the former Ferencváros, Borussia Mönchengladbach and Ugandan national coach has insisted he intends to keep hold of his prize assets Driver and Christophe Berra who is interesting Wolves.

Burnley have been linked with young winger Driver since January, and it is known that we put in two offers for the Oldham born 20-year-old this summer. However Laszio has said: "It is most important to keep players like Christophe Berra and Andrew Driver. These players can develop here, play good games, gain confidence and grow more. After some years maybe they can then choose bigger clubs."

Burnley's attention last week appeared to turn towards Manchester United's Chris Eagles, but there's no doubt that Owen Coyle has pursued Driver and would still like to bring him to Turf Moor. Whether he has any success negotiating with this latest of managers at Hearts remains to be seen.
