Laws will not pursue Kilgallon

Last updated : 15 January 2010 By Tony Scholes
On Wednesday evening it was reported that Kilgallon had turned down a move to Burnley but this morning in the Daily Mirror, and presumably via selected fans message boards, Coylite Alan Nixon claimed Burnley were set to break their wage structure to land the player who was in the losing side in last May's Play Off Final.

Laws has confirmed that he is looking to strengthen the squad in the next two weeks but Burnley FC have responded to the latest Nixon 'exclusive' by dismissing his latest offering.

In a statement the club have said: Burnley Football Club can confirm an interest in signing Sheffield United defender Matthew Kilgallon. However, the club is not prepared to meet the agent's excessive wage demands for the player.

"Contrary to a national newspaper report, the club has no intention of breaking its wage structure and disrupting the togetherness of the squad. Burnley Football Club will instead look elsewhere for reinforcements."
