Burnley are determined to keep hold of star striker Danny Ings as they continue the push for Premier League football.

The Clarets have been the surprise package of the Championship so far and that is down largely to the 19 goals that Ings has fired home in the first half of this season.

It comes as no surprise then to see a host of Premier League clubs, including Liverpool, showing an interest, but the Lancashire side are determined to keep hold.

Star strikers Charlie Austin and Jay Rodriquez have left for QPR and Southampton respectively in the last two years so Burnley fans could be forgiven for fearing the worst regards Ings’ future.

However boss Shaun Dyche is confident they will be able to fight off any interest and keep hold of the player at least until the end of the season.

“The club have made the financial position clear but they’ve also made clear that we’re solid financially,” Dyche said.

“We haven’t got bucket loads of money to spend, which is why we carry a small squad, but we’re in a solid position so I think there are some wise men who run the club and they’ll deal with the situation as appropriate if and when.

“But there have been no calls to me.”

When quizzed about big offers coming in for Ings, he added: “I don’t worry about any of that sort of stuff because how can I do anything about it – if someone wishes to make a big offer it’s their prerogative.”
