Saints have accepted a compensation package for manager George Burley from The SFA.

For the deal to be complete Burley has to accept a contract from the SFA, which is expected to go through in the next few days.

The fee is Undisclosed, but expected to be somewhere in the 800k region. This will be all profit if saints get a manager who is currently out of work.

Glen Hoddle, Mickey Adams, Jason Dodd, Alan Shearer, Billy Davies, Lawrie Sanchez and Chris Coleman have all been linked with the job.

Jason Dodd could take over the club as caretaker manager. His only previous management experience is at Eastleigh of the Blue Square South.

All the latest Burley news will be here on Vital saints.

  • I liked GB and thought he had done good job for you in difficult circumstances. he brought in some good players, but Hoddle- if he gets the job- will get you relegated and undo all GB’s work. Mark My Words. Obviously its none of my buisness to express a feeling about who you SHOULD have, but CC is a good manager, Crumbs ..I bet Fulham fans are livid with the backing LS and now RH is getting compared to what CC had. Any way cousins, night night, Play up Pompey.

  • Amazing GB got the job. This has worked well for your board. His contract was up at the end of the season, no effort was being made to keep GB. You get compensation for letting him go early. The devils luck to you all.
