Burnley deny Bolton have expressed interest in Coyle

Burnley insist they have not been approached by Lancashire rivals Bolton Wanderers regarding manager Owen Coyle (pictured).

Coyle has been installed as the bookmakers' favourite to succeed Gary Megson after the former West Brom manager was sacked earlier this week. Coyle has already distanced himself from the position at his former club and a Burnley spokesman said: "There has been no discussion about our manager's future and no contact from Bolton regarding Owen Coyle."

That will not stop speculation continuing this weekend.
