Burnley boss remains cautious in transfer market

13th June 2018, 17:45 by Gareth Freeman

Sean Dyche says Burnley won't change their approach in the transfer market after securing a spot in the Europa League.

Dyche has previously said he feels the Clarets are now a more attractive proposition for potential targets after establishing themselves as a Premier League club and qualifying for Europe.

However, Dyche has now stressed he won't be taking any huge risks in the transfer window and the club are still keen to bring in players they feel can develop further, rather than star names.

"That’s where I think this club, the board, the chairman, they’re very balanced about it all," he told the Lancashire Telegraph. "They still know what we are. We’re not the real deal.

"We’ve had a great season and the lads deserve the pats on the back they get, but we’re not the real deal. It’s an ongoing basis.

"Who can you sign? Not just for day one - who can develop? Who can move forward? In due course, can they become the next big player for us? And we’re not naive: Can we sign the one who’s already there?"

He added: "They’re hard to find, players who are experienced enough, they get it enough and they’re still hungry enough. They still fit what we’re about. They understand it and the finances fit.

"They’re hard to find, so we often have to get the one who will be the next one, and the one who can mature into the next one. Johann [Berg Gudmundsson] and Popey [Nick Pope] and Tarky [James Tarkowski]. Even Andre [Gray] when he was here. I think he went away a better player than when he came. So we’re still in that process."
