Sean Dyche realistic on Clarets transfer targets

Burnley boss Sean Dyche will only be seeking to add the right sort of characters to his squad this summer after a landmark season.

The Clarets finished seventh in the Premier League and can look forward to a crack at qualifying for the Europa League group stages next term.

Dyche wants to add to his pool of talent but will only be considering players that he believes fit the Burnley mould he has tried to create.

“Ideally you want players who are either showing signs to be hungry enough for the challenge to mature into us, the obvious ones such as James Tarkowski and Nick Pope,” he said.

“Or with players who have been there, seen it and done it slightly. When you think about people like Jack Cork coming into our side, he got an England cap this year.

“He played every single minute of our Premier League season, this season, you know we need that mixture of people who are hungry and thirsty are only going to get better and improve.”

Dyche knows there remains a challenge for a club like Burnley when it comes to attracting new faces to Turf Moor, perhaps less so than some of their Premier League rivals.

“Weirdly, there is a reality to our market, it is very difficult, we are not powerful enough to just walk into every situation and make sure it happens but we think we can make sure enough happens,” he added.
