"I can call youth coaches who have had players we've got here so there's a lot of background to be done," Dyche said of understanding the background of players who have played in England.
"Others less so, I always give Steven Defour as an example, he had 46 caps for Belgium, in one of the golden eras for Belgian football, therefore he has to have a bit about him.
"He was captain at a young age, played against an arch-rival when they had posters saying we're going to cut your head off. If you can handle that you're a tough character, so that's a bit of common sense.
"But if you're about layers and layers of scouting we're not there, it could be a few years before we are."
