Burnley boss Dyche tells new owners: Squad needs refreshing

Burnley boss Sean Dyche is hopeful for some late January additions.

American investment firm ALK Capital completed its takeover of Burnley on New Year's Eve and new chairman Alan Pace pledged to back Dyche in the transfer market this month as the club bid to retain their Premier League place.

Dyche said: "No news at the moment on transfers.

"I'm still working with the new ownership; defining roles, defining the organisational point of view, it's very difficult with Covid and what's going on.

"They've got a hunger to be in the offices, working with people, finding out roles and about the club and how it works, they're having to do that from a distance quite obviously, we're having to do Zoom calls, etc.

"There's a time for freshness and I still think we need a bit of that, I thought we needed that at the end of the last window. (But) when we get everyone fit we look a lot more balanced.

"At the moment there is nothing to put out there, we're just waiting on maybes. It's likely that more things start happening later on in the window than early - it is pushing towards it but we'll see."
