Marney: Burnley interest
Burnley boss Brian Laws has confirmed an interest in Dean Marney, but insists he has yet to make an offer for the Hull City midfielder.
Skysports.com revealed earlier this month that Marney had emerged as a transfer target for the Clarets following the club's relegation from the Premier League.
Reports have subsequently claimed that Laws has offered £1million for the 26-year-old, who made 16 appearances in the top flight this season.
However, while Laws has spoken to Hull regarding the former Tottenham youngster, he has not followed up with a firm bid.
"There's no truth in the rumour that we've offered £1m - I just don't know where that's come from," Laws told the Hull Daily Mail.
"Nothing has been done or said yet. All we have done is make enquiries about him and spoken to the club.
"He's one of a number of players we're interested in. We're just looking around."
Marney joined the Tigers from Spurs in 2006, but is one of a number of players tipped to leave the KC Stadium in order to trim the wage bill.
