The Clarets were recently linked with Ipswich defender, Alex Bruce. Owen Coyle however flatly denied last week that he had spoken to Jim Magilton about the 23 year old Republic of Ireland International. He was linked with a £300,000 move to both Burnley and Leeds United

Bruce played for Ipswich against the Clarets only last Saturday and was on the winning side after we lost badly 3-0 at Turf Moor,

A fee closer to the £1 million mark was also being mentioned.
