Sean Dyche has argued that the January transfer window is “always tough” whether your club has money or not.

Burnley made just one signing during the summer transfer window. Dale Stephens made the move from Premier League rivals Brighton.

Despite this, they have made a steady start to the new season. Dyche’s side sit 16th in the top flight after 15 games. They are currently five points clear of the drop zone.

The ALK Capital investment group, headed up by Alan Price, completed their takeover of Burnley on New Year’s Eve.

Speaking ahead of this weekend’s FA Cup ties, as cited by Sports Mole, Dyche gave his thoughts on the impact Burnley’s new owners could have:

“Not many want to lose their players. It is always a tough window whether you have got money or not.

“We will wait and see. There’s a couple of things we talked about and possible options, so we will wait and see, but I’m not banking on it, I’m just maybe looking at it – doing our homework, being diligent and seeing if the moment can arise when we can do something.

“[Dyche and Pace] had a good chat on a Zoom call, a very open, honest discussion and debate over what we think is appropriate.

“I don’t think there’s too many things that are beyond the norms of the right running of the club. They don’t give me the impression that it’s just going to be throw money everywhere. Although I think there will be some finance to possibly use going forwards.

“I think the idea or the impression I get, and it’s a strong impression, is to build on the good work that has been done, to continue the building process and not try to cheat the system just by throwing money at it everywhere. But we’ll see, we’ll see what finance becomes available.”

Burnley’s new American owners are “fully prepared” to back manager Sean Dyche, according to chairman Alan Pace.

Sean Dyche was angry at full time as his Burnley side lost 1-0 to Leeds United at Elland Road.

Sean Dyche was not going to fall into the trap of criticising a manager above him in the table.

Both Dwight McNeil and Robbie Brady were taken off in Burnley’s 2-1 win over Wolves on Monday.

Burnley added quality to the customary doggedness to overcome Wolves, who remain a mystery.

Now in their fifth season in the Premier League, Burnley and Sean Dyche have earned some ambition.

There can no longer be any sympathy for Liverpool after Klopp’s team selection at Villa Park.

An actual six-pointer? Thumb wars? Or maybe we should just sack it all off entirely.

Man United and Man City are in a title race and welcome £19m and £7m wingers respectively in January.

Robbie Keane supported Everybody Loves since he was a young boy so this is a dream come true for him.

Some teams will be more pleased than usual to see the back of the FA Cup; others should give it a right go.
