Burnley midfielder Dean Marney has highlighted the importance of manager Sean Dyche's decision to give him a more attacking position in the side. Marney was the Clarets' matchwinner at Hull on Saturday, scoring his third goal of the season after a 55-game goalscoring drought. The former Tigers player is pleased to be able to add an attacking threat to his game, but says he regrets celebrating in front of his old supporters. He told the Lancashire Telegraph: "Since the new manager has come in and I've had the more advanced role I've been working on my finishing. It was a nice one to go in. "I've never looked at myself as a sitting midfielder really. Different managers have different opinions and the old manager thought that was my best position. "Probably, looking back, I regret that (celebrating) a little bit, but I was getting a little bit of stick and I suppose it's just a reaction." Scotland international Gordon is available on a free transfer after leaving Sunderland in the summer. Everton boss David Moyes admitted after Saturday's draw with Norwich that a lack of competition was harming Tim Howard's form at Goodison Park and he is now thought to be ready to add Gordon to his goalkeeping options. Moyes is keen to bring in a new goalkeeper with Howard's deputy Jan Mucha out of contract at the end of the season and he has had several trialists in over the last few weeks to cast an eye over possible reinforcements. Gordon joined Sunderland from Hearts in 2007 for ?9million but his time at the Stadium of Light was blighted by a series of injuries. A number of clubs have been linked with Gordon, but Everton are now ready to offer the keeper the chance to get his career back on track.
