Following the unsuccessful battle against relegation from the Premier League, the Clarets will face a battle to retain several of their key players and will competition for a number of players they hope can ignite a challenge to return to the top tier.
Caretaker manager Mike Jackson gave a hint of what could lie ahead for the club in the aftermath of relegation.
He said: “Suffer. That won't go away for a long, long time, in fact it won't go away, it will always be there, it's something I'll have to live with, but it will never go away.
“It's really raw at the moment, gutted for the fans and the players.”
