​Dyche confirms Burnley midfielder Defour to see specialist

Burnley manager Sean Dyche believes that his key midfielder Steven Defour will need to see a knee specialist to get over an injury issue.

It is not believed that Defour has a serious knee problem, but he does not want to get to the bottom of his niggling injuries in that area.

His manager spoke about the issues at a recent press conference.

"He's done very well," said Dyche.

"It's something he's had in his knee for a couple of weeks.

"It's been a bit of a problem and he felt, and we felt, it was right to get it looked at.

"We will make a decision when we know more. We'll find out more in the next few days."
