Skipper Tom Heaton doesn’t want to see any of his team mates depart the club this month, but the Clarets goalkeeper has vowed that the squad will deal with any changes that are made.

With the mid-season transfer window now open for business, Burnley boss Sean Dyche has outlined that the wheels are already in motion in a bid to bring new faces in to the club.

As of yet there hasn’t been any mention of outgoings, though the form of several key players will understandably stoke interest, while those on the fringe could be pushed further adrift with any new additions.

“We wouldn’t want to lose any players at this stage,” said the England international. “It’s important to keep everyone together.

“But if players go, if we get players in, we deal with it - if it’s a new addition or we lose someone. We obviously don’t want to but if you do, you deal with it.

“The team and the squad has plenty of players who can come in and do the job, we’re seeing that at the minute. We just roll on.”

Meanwhile, Heaton has lauded the resilience and organisation of the Clarets following a ninth clean sheet of the term against Ipswich Town at Turf Moor.

“We’ve got a good defensive unit and a tight unit and it’s a great base to get clean sheets and foundations in games,” he said.

“That’s been a feature since I’ve been at the club, the manager sets the team out and organises the play and the work ethic and endeavour that people put in means you don’t get exposed.”

He added: “It does give you a solid foundation in a game, keeping that door shut especially when teams are keeping it tight themselves.

“We’re delighted to have the clean sheet. We’re just over the halfway point and have nine now.”
