No deal for Ukrainian

Last updated : 18 January 2002 By Tony Scholes

Those who were at the reserve team game on Wednesday, including Clarets Mad's Peter Heywood, will not be at all surprised after he turned in a performance that was hardly suggesting he wanted a contract.

It was even thought the club might have even announced his departure as early as yesterday morning but it has come just one day later and Stan has revealed that he is not what we are looking for and is no better than what we have.

I would have thought the reserve team coaching staff will have reported back his poor showing on Wednesday, not what you would expect of a player who is looking for a contract, not having played all season.

So, for now, we will not be adding a Ukrainian to the staff at Turf Moor.
