Burnley transfer news: Clarets' £10m-rated target tipped to leave club, Leicester City shock favourites to sign ex-Chelsea star

Burnley get their 2021/22 campaign underway this weekend, when they take on Brighton & Hove Albion at Turf Moor on Saturday afternoon.

The Clarets have failed to beat Graham Potter's side in their last four attempts, and will be eager to get one over on the south coast side and end that record this time around.

Speaking ahead of the weekend , Burnley boss Sean Dyche addressed the club's relatively quiet summer on the incomings front, and said: “It’s good that we have kept the fitness high, as regards injuries, but we are short, you can see that, particularly in the wide areas, we know that, your asking Browny (Josh Brownhill to go out there and at various other times Erik (Pieters), so that’s something we’re still looking at.

“The market has been quiet across the board apart from the real super power stuff, but I don’t think we’ll be spending £100m!

“Maybe (the Jack Grealish to Man City deal will kick-start the market), we’ll wait and see, it will be interesting to see if it does, not sure, it’s a funny kind of period, which everyone knows, as regards recruitment.”

He continued: “It’s not about money, unless you have super power money, which some have, it’s about alignment, players are still coming in on certain contracts, not open contracts, if you’re Man City, they can put them on whatever they want, whatever they want to pay you, Liverpool, Everton, Chelsea, all these clubs and many more.

“We still have a model, there might be a little bit more flexibility but I’m sure it’s not all going to be ripped up and they just start again.

“It’s still a process that takes time, and we often can’t cherry pick, we have to look for the players that might be available that fit into our market. I don’t see a radical shift in that.”
