Burnley boss Sean Dyche felt it was 'peculiar' that he continues to be left in the dark regarding the details of a potential takeover of the club.

The Turf moor chief conceded he knows very little about the offers on the table, which he finds unusual given his length of service at Turf Moor.

The two-horse race between American sports investment company ALK Capital LLC and rival bidders Chris Farnell and Mohammed El Kashashy is understood to be nearing a conclusion, with both parties keen to finalise negotiations before the new year.

However, Dyche admits that hasn't been made aware of the ins and outs of a deal that would shape the Clarets' future.

He said: "I don't know any more than I didn't know! There's more noise out there about possible takeovers, I don't know where that's at.

"That's slightly peculiar because I'm the manager and I have been for eight years. We'll have to watch this space.

"I went through a takeover at Watford and it all changed for me; it was a different model and they wanted a different person to build on their model and thinking.

"Different owners have different thoughts, but sometimes they don't. Sometimes they want to allow it to run, allow it to work, continue and progress. Some owners want to re-think things.

"However, until it becomes a reality I know no more than that. I've just got to be open-minded. If it happens, and the rumours are true, then we've got to accept the responsibility of taking it forward."
