Dyche - Heaton, Hart and Pope all in my plans
Sean Dyche says he wants to keep Tom Heaton, Joe Hart and Nick Pope at Burnley this month.
The Clarets boss has recently restored Heaton in goal, a man who lost his place at both club and international level to Pope after a shoulder injury sidelined him last season.
Pope's own misfortune prompted Dyche to swoop for Hart in the summer and now the coach has an embarrassment of riches between the posts.
Heaton has impressed in the wins over West Ham and Huddersfield and to complicate matters, Pope is now back in the frame, potentially pushing Hart down the pecking order.
All three have been linked with moves away over the last six months but with the window open, the boss is not planning on letting any of his star trio leave.
"Popey is not quite fully fit yet but he's been training with us for a long time now and he's chomping, that's for sure, to be ready to play," said Dyche. "We'll decide that over the next couple of days, but certainly his mentality is really clear.
"Tom's come in and done well, Joe's done well. Sometimes it can be unfortunate for 'keepers and fortunate for the one coming in.
"What I mean by that is it is good goalkeeping, but also sometimes just that you do need a team in front of you to operate.
"Tom has come in and the team has operated in front of him so I think that's helpful as well.
"I like them all and it's 'who's up for the task, who's ready to play at any given time?' That's what I'm here to do, pick a team that can win games."
