Burnley

Dyche satisfied with Burnley recruitment plans

7th February 2019, 11:31 by Gareth Freeman

Burnley had a quiet January window but manager Sean Dyche is happy with their business and the plans they have in place for the future.

The Clarets added just one new face to their squad in the winter transfer window as Peter Crouch arrived from Stoke, with fellow striker Sam Vokes moving in the opposite direction.

However, Burnley brought Mike Rigg in as technical director earlier in the season and Dyche feels the foundations are in place for more success in the transfer market as the Turf Moor club continue to build.

“We are looking for continued progress,” Dyche told the Lancashire Telegraph.

“We have done well I feel with player trading and with making a team that can be successful and it is now about adding the next level to that.

“Can we add more detailed analysis, more detail in our financial planning regards players, are there high quality younger players we can bring in, can we open our minds to the foreign market in a more deep level?

“We have been but can we get that depth to the players that we are looking at.

“It is all of those things that are a continued part of the growth."

On Rigg, he added: "A big part of his role is to start getting a more enhanced model to work from on the recruitment side and then that will grow into other areas over time I am sure.”
