The Clarets have handed a trial to 19-year-old, Fernando Guerrero.



The Ecuador international left-sided striker is currently on Real Madrid’s books and plays for their reserve team, Real Madrid Castilla.

Coyle has been tracking Guerrero for some time it would appear after seeing him in action for Real’s reserve team.

Guerrero is expected to link up with the Clarets in California this week on their pre-season tour of the USA.

The striker who can also play in midfield was born in Quito, Ecuador and is the son of ex-footballer Jose Fernando Guerrero who used to play for Nacional of Quito. The family emigrated to Spain when Fernando was just a child.

Fernando Alexander Guerrero Vásquez, to give him his full name is a product of Real Madrid’s Academy after signing for them in 2007.

He played for CS Emelec on loan last season after signing for the Ecuador side in December 2008.

Guerrero made his International debut for Ecuador on 21 January 2007 in a friendly against Sweden and now has two caps to his name.
