Burnley co-chairman John Banaszkiewicz insists Danny Ings is not for sale.
Ings has been linked with Southampton this week.
â€śWe havenâ€™t had any formal approach but regardless itâ€™s in our interests to keep him because heâ€™s been a great asset to the club. Weâ€™d like him to stay, heâ€™s still contracted to us and weâ€™d like to maintain that for next season.â€ť
Banaszkiewicz added: â€śWe absolutely want to keep our key players. We hope weâ€™ll be using a lot of the team for next season. Itâ€™s all about team synergy to enhance our prospects. We do obviously need to build the squad ready for the Premier League as well.
â€śWe want to keep our best players and thatâ€™s proven with Kieran Trippier. Heâ€™s one of the most sought after players at the club and we managed to get that over the line.â€ť
