Burnley chief Paul Fletcher cannot rule out more players leaving Turf Moor this summer.

Defender Clarke Carlisle has been linked with Blackpool, despite recently penning a new two-year deal.

Fletcher told the Lancashire Telegraph: “We only want players who want to be with us.

“It’s hard to keep players now who don’t want to be at a club, but if people want to be here they are more than welcome.

“It seems nowadays, though, that players move clubs and as soon as they do their agents are looking to move them again. In my time, if you were offered a contract you did a somersault and took your wife out for a celebration.

“But it’s not like that now. Agents are putting their names around all the time. It’s a constant thing and it happens to all clubs.

“I think players move too quickly now and you don’t get that affinity and that bond with fans."
