The Turf Moor wide man has been at the centre of widespread speculation regarding his future in recent months, with the Clarets’ well-documented pursuit of Lyon star Maxwel Cornet adding fuel to the fire.
For his part, however, Sean Dyche is confident that the 21-year-old is going nowhere.
Speaking after last week’s defeat against Liverpool, he said: “At the minute he's enjoying his football, he's under a long term contract, and as far as he feeds back to me, he's enjoying the constant challenge of the Premier League.”
That update should come as a relief to former Crystal Palace striker Morrison, who voiced his admiration of McNeil on this weekend’s edition of Sky Sports’ Soccer Saturday.
He said: “They [Burnley] want to sign Cornet, and he is a left winger as well. I hope that’s not to lose a player like Dwight McNeil because he’s an exciting talent.
"He’s an old-fashioned winger – he wants to get half a yard and get balls into the box. As an ex-centre-forward, I’d have loved to play with him because you know what you’re going to get.
"He suits Burnley down to the ground.
"Do I believe he can go and play for a bigger team in the Premier League? He definitely can, he’s got the ability, and there will come a time when he does want to move.”
