Burrows Might Also Move On

Veteran full-back David Burrows is set to make the fifth transfer of his professional career unless Coventry City better the offer they have made to him.

The 31-year-old is out of contract this summer and can move for free under the Bosman ruling if he does not agree an extension to his current deal.

The Highfield Road side have put a two-year proposal to Burrows, but the former Liverpool man is not happy with the terms.

With Midlands rivals Wolves and West Bromwich Albion are believed to be tracking the player, who admits that he could start the new season with a new club.

He said:

"The contract Coventry have offered is the same as the last three years and I am a little bit disappointed from that point of view.

"There is every possibility that I won't sign the deal they have offered me. I have made it clear I shall give every opportunity to assess other options.

"There are a couple of clubs interested but I shall have to wait and see what they have to offer.

"I have told the boss that if we can sort something out my first intention is to stay at this club - I enjoy it here."

But the Black Country boy has told manager Gordon Strachan that he will not make him wait to see whether he needs to invest in a new left-back.

He said:

"I will make a decision in the next two or three weeks, I will sit down with the boss and talk about it.

"It is possible that I will start next season with a new club. My contract runs out on June 30 and if nothing is sorted out here I shall go somewhere else - that's football.

"You can't let your heart rule your head. It has to be right for myself and my family."
