Burnley boss Sean Dyche: I've tried to buy Deeney

Burnley boss Sean Dyche admits he tried to sign Watford captain Troy Deeney in the past.

He worked with Deeney during his time in charge at Vicarage Road and the Clarets were linked with a move for him at the start of their last Premier League season in 2014/15.

“As soon as they said 'this amount of money', it went straight out of my thinking," Dyche said of his interest in Deeney. “We're at Burnley and money is not easy to come by here.

“He knows the respect I have for him, I still do, I still send him the odd text saying 'well done' and things like that and he's a very good player."
