Burnley boss Dyche keen to welcome back Wood

Burnley boss Sean Dyche is keen to welcome back Chris Wood from New Zealand's Olympics campaign.

The striker will now head back towards the UK to link up with the Clarets and Dyche feels things are heading the right direction with a fortnight to go to the start of the Premier League season.

“There are a couple of games coming up so we will see how the squad looks after that," said Dyche.

“Woody is coming back – unfortunately for Woody.

“It's shame for him and for them but good for us, in a way.

“He comes back and will be able to re-acclimatise and get a bit of recovery before he joins in with us.

“I am pretty pleased and the main thing is – so far – we are injury-free.

“Everyone is fit and well at the moment and long may that continue, of course.

“Then if we can reinforce the squad as well, we'd like to think we are growing into pre-season so that when the real stuff starts we're ready."
