Blues Linked With Loan Move for Burnley Striker as Ward Interest Intensifies
Wednesday, 11th Jan 2017 13:56
Town are reportedly interested in loaning 19-year-old Burnley striker Dan Agyei, who was recently on loan with Coventry City. Elsewhere, Rotherham are reported to have turned down three bids for Blues target Danny Ward.
According to the Daily Mirror, Clarets boss Sean Dyche has thwarted a loan move for Agyei but the Blues are said to remain keen.
Kingston-upon-Thames-born Agyei joined Burnley in 2015 having caught their eye while playing youth football with AFC Wimbledon.
The 6ft tall frontman is yet to make a senior appearance for the Clarets but in August joined the Sky Blues - then managed by former Blues skipper and coach Tony Mowbray - on loan. Agyei, who can also play on the left as well as a central striker, has now returned to his parent club.
While with Coventry Agyei scored five times in 15 starts and four substitute appearances.
Meanwhile, Sky Sports are reporting that Rotherham have turned down three bids for Ward with the latest offer just under £2 million. If that report is correct then that would almost certainly rule Town out of the running.
In addition to the Blues, Sheffield Wednesday, Derby, Huddersfield and Wolves have all been mentioned in connection with the 26-year-old frontman.
Town continue to be linked with Dagenham and Redbridge striker Oliver Hawkins.
According to the Swindon Advertiser Swindon Town have had a six-figure bid turned down for the 24-year-old, the Blues having made a number of enquiries but no firm offer.
Elsewhere, Lincoln City fans crashed their website and were queuing from 4.45am this morning as they sought to secure tickets for next Tuesday's FA Cup replay against the Blues at Sincil Bank.
The Imps have now sold their allocation for the all-ticket match, which is being shown live on BBC One.

Has Mick Found a Formula? by Pickersblue22
On November 22nd, Exeter City were bottom of League Two, bereft of confidence, ideas, and without a home win since April, all the signs were pointing to a season of struggle. A 1-0 win at Leyton Orient that night was the start of an marvellous 12-match unbeaten run, containing 10 wins. That run took them from below the dreaded dotted line to the fringes of the automatic promotion places, and was only ended by defeat in the Devon derby at Plymouth on Saturday.
The Question We're All Asking: Is Relegation a Serious Possibility? by Superfrans

Another Post-Christmas Carol (Nightmare on Portman Street) by dusth
Christmas had passed and the sales, when all good folks looked for a fair bargain, were no longer in full swing. In fact they were over. Poor Mick McCratchitt was still at his desk at old Scrooge's Ticket and Footballing Agency, looking on his iPad at the bargains that might have been when young Tel his assistant brought him a bowl of warm water and a teabag. "This'll cheer you up boss!" "Thanks, old lad," said Mick and plunged his hands into the bowl. It instantly froze.
