'We Are On A Sound Footing' - Dyche

29 December 2016

Sean Dyche does not fear the opening of the January transfer window, thanks to the sound financial platform in place at Turf Moor.

The Clarets are heading for the turn of the year in good shape on and off the pitch.

And while there may be interest in members of the Burnley squad, there is no need to sell.

“I’m not worried. We are on a sound footing here,” said Dyche.

“We know that financially, the way the club is run.

“It’s a challenge when you try to spend money to get players in sometimes because of the enormity of that and what’s needed.

“On the other hand, we are in a very stable place with regards others trying to get our players.”

The Clarets go into their final game of 2016 against Sunderland at Turf Moor on Saturday in 14th place in the Premier League.

Jeff Hendrick will miss the visit of the Black Cats through suspension but midfield partner Dean Marney has a chance of recovering from the knock that forced him off before the end of the Boxing Day win over Middlesbrough.

“He is looking better. We’ll see how he is in the next 24 hours,” added Dyche.

Sunderland, who have lost three of their last four games to remain in the bottom three, will be without goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

The England under-21 international is expected to be out for at least six weeks with a knee injury he sustained in Monday’s 3-1 loss at Manchester United.

Vito Mannone is set to return in goal for David Moyes’ side.
