Owen Coyle is currently having further talks with 19 year old winger, Fernando Guerrero. The player has flown over from Ecuador and is currently in Burnley to discuss his future.



It is understood the club faxed over an offer for the player of £2 million to his current club, Independiente del Valle of Ecuador’s Serie B last week. There is still however a requirement for the Club’s President to agree to any financial arrangements and rubber stamp the deal. It is understood though that Burnley have met Independiente del Valle’s asking price with Owen Coyle keen to have the player signed up in time for the new season which kicks-off on Saturday August 15th at the Britannia against Stoke City.

Coyle was of course impressed with Guerrero during his trial out on their US Tour and he played in both their matches against VC Fusion and Portland Timbers.

The Ecuador International used to play for Real Madrid Castilla, Real’s reserve team and was on their books for two years between 2007-2009. After a loan spell with CS Emelec he joined his current club, Independiente del Valle earlier this year.
