Burnley transfer news: Clarets ‘close’ to €3.5m deal for Stuttgart winger, Former Norwich City striker on West Brom ‘radar’
The Turf Moor side still have two weeks to complete any summer transfer business before the window shuts.
Burnley made it three EFL Championship matches without a win last night as Vincent Kompany’s side could only manage a 1-1 draw at home to Hull City.
The Clarets have now not won since the opening day of the season when they beat Huddersfield Town and time is rapidly running on for Vincent Kompany to add any new additions to his squad.
Speaking after last night’s match, Kompany was asked if he was frustrated and said: “Yeah, look, if I have to say all the things I would have kind of expected in the beginning of being in such a very new gelling team, is this type of game, these kinds of nights.
“But I can’t commend enough how hard my team is working, how hard they are pressing, how much they are fighting for every second ball, and everything that comes with it.
“It’s a physical league, but we’re up there, and I’m taking a lot of joy in watching them together.
“The end product is the hardest part of the game I think, when we are in our position, I reckon we are going to depend on the amount of chances we create, and today were enough, but we have to have as many as we can to get past teams.”
Burnley’s next match is this Saturday at home to Blackpool.
The summer transfer window is open for just under two weeks before it slams shut at the end of the month for clubs across England.
