Burnley boss Steve Cotterill has stated Kyle Lafferty will not be leaving on the cheap.

The Northern Ireland international striker is one of the Championship's hottest properties and has attracted a host of interest.

A number of offers have been tabled for the 19-year-old, but they have, to date, been short of The Clarets' valuation.

"The most important people to ignore it are probably myself and Kyle Lafferty," stated Cotterill.

"If anything does happen I'd like to think I'd be the first one to know about it and Kyle would be the second.

"I don't think it's a problem because Kyle has been brought up in the right way, to ignore that, and if there is anything to tell him, we'll tell him.

"But it's not an issue at the moment because there hasn't been a big enough offer for there to be an issue."

Meanwhile, Cotterill has no plans to bring in an emergency keeper after Mike Pollitt was recalled by Wigan.

"I've no plans at all to bring another goalkeeper in; none at all," he concluded.
