Burnley boss Dyche admits raiding Championship on agenda

Burnley boss Sean Dyche won't rule out raiding the Championship over the January transfer window.

The Clarets are again being linked with Derby right-back Jayden Bogle but the Burnley boss has moved to underline the restraints he is working under

He told the Lancashire Evening Telegraph: “You're all vying to make a change if that change is available, it's tough.

“One of our markets historically has been the Championship but you might have Championship clubs who are trying to get in the Premier League and all that stuff. It's changed.

“Deals are not deals any more, there aren't many where you nick a player like we did with (Nick) Pope and Johann (Berg Gudmundsson) with a couple of million quid here and there. It's not like that anymore. I could ring about a Conference player and they could say they want £3 million quid.

“The market's shifted massively over the last couple of seasons."
