Burnley had been linked with a move for Newcastle United striker Michael Chopra. But quickly backed away when they were told there would be a fee involved.
The 22-year-old turned down a one-year extenstion to his contract at St James' Park, and is available for a fee of £300,000.
As a result, Chopra will NOT be heading to Turf Moor. Manager Steve Cotterill said: 'If I had £300,000 to spend, I would have spent it by now.'
Cardiff and Barnsley are both in talks with the striker, and don't rule out a late bid from a Premiership club, thought to be Watford.
