Burnley manager Sean Dyche has opened up on how he is planning to shape up his transfer strategies.
Back to back victories against West Ham United and Huddersfield Town gave them a temporary relief as they moved out of the relegation zone but the job is yet to be done.
Dyche has been on the lookout for a forward who can be deployed on the flanks and can also play his part upfront as a proper centre forward. Jay Rodriguez of West Bromwich Albion was one of the many names that were being touted as a possible arrival in this winter transfer window but the Clarets seem to have moved on.
Bringing wingers has been one of the priorities for Dyche and he is working out with the club hierarchy to address this issue. Matt Phillips of West Brom and Hull City’s Jarrod Bowen are among the names who could arrive at Turf Moor in this month.
Dyche said, “We have got to look at that because with Azza been out for a while. There is no timescale so we are not absolutely sure but it is certainly going to be weeks rather than a week or two, certainly over a month I would think so we have to look at that.
“But the rules don’t change at Burnley, it is not like we are just going to magic up £50m quid and sign who we want so they have got to be available.”
