Burnley transfer news: Clarets plot PL raid for defender, Newcastle warned over summer swoop, Mourinho eyes up Man United star

Even in spite of their 2-1 defeat to West Ham on Monday night, Burnley look like they should have enough to beat the drop this season.

The Clarets are currently nine points clear of the drop zone with four games left to play, although their next clash comes against 18-placed Fulham.

Defeat would see Burnley’s cushion reduced to just six points, but Sean Dyche is refusing to be drawn into discussions about how damaging a loss could be for his side.

Speaking ahead of this weekend's fixture, he said: “It looks no more tasty than it would have done at the beginning of the season.

“You have to play everyone home and away, so our mentality is firm no matter who we play.

“We’ve come a long way, I’ve mentioned it a lot lately because we have, since game seven when we had two points.

“I haven’t lost sight of that, we’ve had to put a lot of hard work in to this season and still have work to go.

“But if you would have said to me then we’d be where we are now, I’d have absolutely ripped your hands off.

“I think the performance levels are good, the energy is good, the com mitment to the cause is excellent, so I expect us to see out the season properly and play against whoever we play against to try and win.”
