Dyche: January window is tough ‘with or without money’

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.”
