Burnley boss Sean Dyche on 'stretching' the transfer budget under new owners!
And the Burnley boss believes that he may be given the opportunity to do that following ALK Capital's takeover last month.
Both Dyche and new chairman Alan Pace appear aligned in their thinking, with the pair speaking about 'evolution, not revolution'.
The two are in agreement that there is certainly no need to tear up the script, but a bit more flexibility for Dyche, who has never expected an endless pot of gold, would certainly help.
"It has never been free flowing, we have never been signing loads and loads of players without losing some players or selling players," said Dyche.
"That's what we're finding out now. Meetings with the chairman, myself and the staff will be ongoing. Now that they're in situ we can find out about the perimeters and how they want to work going forward.
"The suggestion so far is that we may be able to stretch things in certain ways, but it's not going to be where the ownership changes and a huge amount of money goes straight in."
Dyche added: "That's not the case. It'll be more a case of looking at the club and finding out the right levels to work with. That's appropriate because there has been a lot of good work already been done here.
"I've always said about stretching it, not breaking it. That's what I'll be looking to say: 'Can we stretch it and how far can we stretch it?' so that we can continue to be competitive and be even more competitive."
Burnley's business model and, more specifically, their recruitment policy, came under heavy scrutiny under Mike Garlick, with the outgoing chairman's frugal approach proving restrictive in various windows.
While Pace, in tow with a new-look board, has vowed to end the 'frustration' by giving Dyche his backing, the Clarets chief acknowledges that they are having to play catch-up.
He said: "It's such a tough window, and not just for us. I speak to managers at clubs that are much more powerful than ours, based on their name and their finance, and it's really difficult.
"Recruitment has been the most difficult side of football for a long, long time. As soon as one player goes for a crazy amount, the whole market shifts.
"That's great if you're a selling club, but not if you're trying to build something and bring someone in. That's how quickly it can alter. It raises the bar so then everyone has to raise the bar.
"That's where we've been left behind, we've got to now start bridging that gap because the outgoing chairman didn't want to chase this system, they were 'no, no, no, we can't do that' so that is the challenge."
Financial backing, however, is irrelevant unless the appropriate targets can be sourced.
Dyche confirmed that the club had made 'no headway' as yet, but several 'situations' were active.
"We continue to talk with the new chairman and the people that are involved and see what is what," he said.
"But you have got to have the targets first. You can have all the money you want but if the targets are not there, or don't fit in with the model that you work to, then it is irrelevant.
"The targets are the important part and then the finance is whether we can do them."
