The international transfer window closes at 11 p.m. on Monday, although Premier League clubs can sign players on permanent or loan deals until 5 p.m. on October 16th.

Burnley go into the international break without a point from their opening three games, and, speaking after the 3-1 defeat at Newcastle United, Dyche, when asked how important the final days of the window are, he said: “I don't think they are that important to us.

“I don't think there will be anything happening.

“People do forget, because of the amount of injuries, you can lose sight of where the group is, and when we get everyone fit and look at the squad, then we might be one or two, possibly three at a stretch, short, but generally I think you would think it was a rounded squad.”

Dyche, who has only been able to bring in back up keeper Will Norris and midfielder Dale Stephens so far this window, is hoping to have Ben Mee, Jay Rodriguez and Jack Cork closer to fitness after the international break, after welcoming Ashley Barnes, James Tarkowski, Johann Berg Gudmundsson and Robbie Brady back into the squad over the last two games.

Matt Lowton is also out injured, with no timescale on his return.
