Is Eagles set to fly in?

Last updated : 08 July 2008 By Tony Scholes
The 22-year-old Eagles has never been able to establish himself in the Manchester United side and has made just two Premier League starts for them. However, he does have experience at Championship level in two loan spells with Watford sandwiching a loan at Sheffield Wednesday.

He's made over 50 league appearances and once scored for Sheffield Wednesday on the Turf on New Year's Eve 2005.

The speculation now is that Eagles could be set to land at Turf Moor in a permanent deal that could set the Clarets back a fee of up to £1.5 million including a series of add ons. There is though one other club in the chase for Eagles but we should know soon enough whether the Hemel Hempstead born player is set to become Owen Coyle's sixth signing.
