  4. Your views on Burnley's transfer window so farpublished at 18:04 17 January

    We've been asking you to give your thoughts on which players Burnley should sign, keep or sell.

    Here's what you have been talking about so far:

    Douglas: I'm very worried about Burnley this year. If ever there was a club that look like a relegation side, it's us. Defence is not as solid as in previous years, midfield seem to get overwhelmed by opponents and no strike force. If we don't buy well this month then down we go.

    Barry: I would just like to see us get a midfielder who can play with both feet, hold the ball and slow down play when needed, instead of it going like a hot potato back and forwards. Also, a striker who plays with two feet and takes on defences with a bit of speed and flair, neither of which we had - even with Chris Wood.

    Anon: I think it's time to rebuild the squad because it is looking older and needs some fresh, good young players to bond with Pope, Mee, Brownhill, McNeil and Cornet. They could go down so we have to act quickly.

  5. 'Money doesn't solve everything'published at 16:47 17 January

    Sean Dyche said Burnley will look to replace Chris Wood in the January transfer window but said he won't sign a player for the sake of it.

    The Clarets have been left with three recognised forwards after Wood joined Newcastle for £25m.

    When asked if that money will be invested back into the squad, Dyche said: "It is ongoing as to whether we can invest it.

    "We didn't want to lose him but it is a lot of money for that player. Money doesn't solve everything - it gives you a better option on recruitment, but January is still a tough window.

    "Recruitment is an ongoing situation. We want to be productive. The challenge is finding the right player, there’s no point recruiting for the sake of it."

    On Wood's exit, Dyche added: "It wasn't a perfect scenario. He was a good player - a bit quieter this season, but has a good record.

    "We have been down this road before. We have a strong group and our mentality is going to be important. Woody is a good player, has done very well for us and we wish him well."

  6. Dyche on Covid, Wood's exit & January transferspublished at 16:07 17 January

    Despite Burnley's request for Tuesday's Premier League game at home against Watford to be postponed, Sean Dyche has been speaking to the media for his pre-match news conference as normal.

    Here is what he had to say:

    • There were only 10 recognised first team players training today which is why the postponement request was made.

    • On how thin the Clarets squad is, Dyche said his side have gone too far below the threshold and "are stretched to the limit".

    • Dyche said the situation is slightly worse from last week because Charlie Taylor is coming out of Covid but has taken a knock and needs a scan.

    • On overcoming Covid himself, Dyche said: "It’s been tough working with staff from a distance and not getting to see the players is difficult".

    • Losing Chris Wood "wasn't a perfect scenario" but Dyche added that "he’s done very well for us and we wish him well".

    • On whether the club will reinvest the money from Wood in January, Dyche said "money doesn’t solve everything" and "the challenge is finding the right player, there’s no point recruiting for the sake of it".

    • On playing four games fewer than relegation rivals, Dyche said "the challenge is there in front of us".

    • He added that "we have games to play but at the moment we haven't got the players to fulfil the task".

  7. Benteke happy at Palace, despite Burnley interestpublished at 13:40 17 January

    Christian Benteke has no intention of leaving Crystal Palace this month amid reports that there is interest from Burnley in signing the striker.

    The 31-year-old signed a two-year deal last season and has featured regularly for Patrick Vieira's side this season, starting 11 games and scoring four goals with another nine appearances coming from the bench.

    Benteke does have competition at Selhurst Park with Odsonne Edouard and Jean-Philippe Mateta also options to start up front for the Eagles, but he is happy at the club.

    Burnley are looking for a replacement striker following the sale of Chris Wood to Newcastle.

  11. 'Carroll would probably be a back-up option for Burnley'published at 10:37 17 January

    Transfer Gossip Daily

    Burnley are reportedly interested in signing Andy Carroll after his short-term deal at Reading ended on Saturday, but the Telegraph's Luke Edwards thinks the 33-year-old would only be a back-up option for Sean Dyche's side.

    Speaking on the Transfer Gossip Daily podcast on BBC Sounds, he said: "I didn’t think I’d be talking about Andy Carroll in this transfer window, I have to say.

    "I’m kind of happy for him that Carroll is getting talked about. I’m also surprised that he has never played for Burnley before and Sean Dyche. That just seems like a natural fit.

    "Burnley are in the search for a striker. I’m not sure how much money they have actually got. There will be a short-termism to it and they could offer Andy Carroll maybe an 18-month deal probably comfortably on more money than he was on at Reading.

    "I think for Burnley he would probably be a back-up option really to see if they can get anyone else."

  12. Premier League has 'opened the door' for postponements, says Hasenhuttlpublished at 12:19 14 January

    Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl says the Premier League has "opened the door" for fixture postponements after Burnley's game against Leicester was called off.

    Hasenhuttl has criticised the lack of transparency around matches being cancelled and he reiterated his thoughts on player eligibility for rearranged fixtures.

    "The Premier League has opened the door and they cannot be surprised if someone is walking through it," he said.

    "This is why I say that new signings shouldn't be allowed to play in cancelled games when they haven't been there before this game was due to play."

    He said he did not know the specific circumstances surrounding Burnley's player availability but said it is a problem the authorities need to solve.

    "Everything is speculation and the Premier League has to handle this," he said.

    "I cannot say anything about Burnley. They lost a striker - I don't know."

  14. Your views on Burnley's transfer window so farpublished at 18:20 13 January

    We've been asking you to give your thoughts on which players Burnley should sign, keep or sell.

    Here's what you have been talking about so far:

    Julian Minnekeer: Burnley’s defence is pretty solid but Sean Dyche needs to bring in, at the very minimum, an attacking midfielder and two top-class and highly-rated forwards. Burnley are not scoring goals and this needs to change quickly if they have any chance of staying in the Premier League.

    Christopher Clemson: With the transfer of Wood to Newcastle, Burnley need to act fast and bring in a striker ASAP, or we could be well adrift after the next few games.

    Mike: The new owners need to spend some of the promised money, and quickly. Several players who are out of contract at the end of the season are playing as if they don't care. Hardly the greatest self-promotion. On present form, some of them would struggle to attract interest from a Division Two team.
