At the end of the 2016-17 season of the English Premier League, Shay Given was released from Stoke City and so far, the veteran player is a free agent but he is rumored to be on edging closer towards the tier 2 division English League Championship.
The head coach of Burnley, Sean Dyche is believed to be interested in adding to his squad another goal-keeper which can extend the depth of his squad as well as have another shot-stopper who can be utilized as back-up option for matches and Cup games.
Shay Given is 41 years old but the Irish player still wants to continue performing as he said: “Yes I am 41, but I do feel I could go on for another year, be it as a number two or three in the Premier League, or number one in the Championship. There might be one last hurrah, a promotion, it just depends what is out there. I have no divine right to get a club but if someone came along and it was of interest, it might happen”
