Burnley boss Sean Dyche has admitted that winger Dwight McNeil will leave eventually.

McNeil is in-demand, with Manchester United among a number of teams linked with a move.

Dyche admitted that McNeil will be difficult to keep hold of, such is his level of talent.

As per the Daily Mirror, he said: “Look, we know Dwight is a player who will certainly go beyond us – but in a positive way. We don’t remotely want to lose good players. But eventually some players will outgrow the club in the sense of a bigger club coming along and buying them because of their skill set.

“Dwight is clearly a top talent. He is playing and delivering every week.

“If he remains grounded and keeps the hard work ethic he’s got – and I’m sure he will do that - then his talent will continue to shine through. And we’re not naïve enough to think it’s going to go unnoticed.”
