In the wake of our decent start to the season and the fact Nicky Butt has not been involved, it looks like the midfielder could soon be on his way to Owen Coyle`s Burnley. On £50k a week and a prime target for participating in our cost-cutting blitz the departure of the Ginger Warrior wouldn`t be the biggest loss to the side, with the likes of Smith, Nolan, Barton, Guthrie, Donaldson and Vukic all capable of thriving in the Championship.

The NOTW claims that the player will be offered a two year deal and a return to his native North-West.
