Dyche wants Toon ace Ritchie

13th January 2018, 15:01 by Chris Rivers

Burnley boss Sean Dyche is believed to have added Newcastle's Matt Ritchie to his transfer wishlist as he targets a new winger.

Dyche is keen to bring in cover for Robbie Brady this month as the Republic of Ireland international is expected to miss the remainder of the season through injury.

The Clarets chief would appear to have a lengthy list of potential acquisitions, with the likes of Aaron Lennon, James McClean and Jordan Jones all having been linked with a move to Turf Moor recently.

Scotland international Ritchie is also thought to feature on Dyche's list as he weighs up an ambitious swoop for a player who has been a regular for Newcastle this season.

The 28-year-old, who cost the Toon £12million when he signed from Bournemouth in 2016, has five assists to his name this term and is thought to be on Dyche's radar due to his crossing ability and set-piece deliveries.
