Tykes Transfer Latest: 'No truth` in Akinbiyi move

Tykes Transfer Latest: 'No truth` in Akinbiyi move

Burnley manager Owen Coyle has claimed that there is 'no truth` in Barnsley`s apparent quest to land striker Ade Akinbiyi.

The tykes are in need of a goalscorer to boost their Championship status claim, and it seems that Akinbiyi fits the bill.

However, Coyle told the Lancashire Evening Telegraph:

"There's no truth in that"

Akinbiyi is the cousin of current Barnsley striker Kayode Odejayi, it seems the two could make a powerful pairing up front. But Coyle continued:

"The players we've got left are the ones we want to keep"

The thirty-three year old has bagged twelve goals in sixty-four appearances for the Clarets since rejoining them eighteen months ago from Sheff Utd.
