Dyche confirms Stephens signing after Burnley defeat Millwall

Josh Brownhill scored a special long-range strike as Burnley defeated Millwall to reach the EFL Cup fourth-round.

Signed from Bristol City in January, Brownhill scored his first goal for the Clarets with a superb long-range bomb to put his side ahead in the first-half.

Matej Vydra capped off the 2-0 victory with a late goal to book a clash with Manchester City or Bournemouth in the next round.


And manager Sean Dyche confirmed after the match that the club were close to signing midfielder Dale Stephens from Brighton.

He said: “He is a player I have liked historically and he fits with the financial thinking at the moment but he is a player we like

“He is an experienced player and I have tried to sign him in the past and I have often stuck with targets

“We wish him all the best for when he comes in. It is not done but it is more or less done."
