BURNLEY boss Owen Coyle has denied making a move for Ipswich Town defender Alex Bruce.

The Clarets and Leeds United were linked with Bruce this morning in a national paper and while Coyle wants a new defender, Bruce is not one on his list.

Coyle said: “I speak to Jim Magilton quite a lot and as much as I think the boy's a good player, it's not a name we've ever discussed.

“We're still looking to strengthen, there's no doubt about it.

“I've got a couple of things out there, and if one comes back, we'll move quickly on it.

“As it is, we have to continue to do our best in that field.

“We're looking, as I have all summer, because it's an area we would love to strengthen.

“Numerically, we don't have a lot of different variations, so the search continues, and if the right player comes along, we'll try to move on him.”
