Burnley boss Dyche confident transfer budget won't change

Burnley boss Sean Dyche is happy with their season so far.

Dyche is in his eighth season at Turf Moor and a run of four wins and three draws prior to the interruption has Burnley well-placed to attempt another top-half finish.

They are 10th, a point behind Arsenal and two behind Tottenham. Annual progress presents familiar challenges, though, and the 48-year-old doesn't hide from that.

"The idea of stepping forward at Burnley is difficult," he explained to the Daily Mail. "The finances are highly unlikely to change radically whatever happens this season. We develop players well but at some stage you do have to support those players with others you bring in. So it's always a challenge.

"We are not in a position to guarantee what happens next season or beyond because it's just not like that. Every season is a big season for us. It's small steps at Burnley, never big strides."
