Burnley manager insists 'no-one's for sale'

Lancashire Telegraph: Sean Dyche (left) has got the best out of Danny Ings  this season Sean Dyche (left) has got the best out of Danny Ings this season

BURNLEY boss Sean Dyche expects to keep his first team squad intact this month, insisting: “No-one’s for sale.”

Star striker Danny Ings has been linked with a move to a Premier League club almost daily since the January transfer window opened, with West Brom the latest in a long line.

But the 21-year-old isn’t the only current Claret to have attracted attention from top flight teams.

Highly-rated right back Kieran Trippier is said to have been watched by Stoke and West Brom also, while captain Jason Shackell has been linked with Crystal Palace.

However Dyche is maintaining a relaxed approach to the remaining days of the transfer window, which closes at 11pm on Friday, and said: “We’re looking to bring in, not get out.

"We've been very clear as a club to come out and say no-one's for sale, and they're not, it's as simple as that.

"We're on a journey and we want to see it through this season.

"All of our players are important, never more so than when we carry such a small squad.

"The club have been really strong with it and really open with it, no-one's for sale at this club."

Dyche is instead focused on increasing his incomings, following the arrival of Ashley Barnes, who is set to face his former club Brighton at Turf Moor tonight (kick-off 7.45pm).

"We've tried to have open lines of communication with a number of different parties," said the Clarets boss.

"The finance is not so easy so we'll have to judge that accordingly.

"We have been keeping links open in certain situations but in our situation it's not as easy as some who just throw money at everything, so we have to work accordingly, and we'll see what comes around our way.

"There's a strong possibility we're looking in the loan market but that's been kind of all season really.

"Yet again it comes down to availability, the will and desire of someone to come in and want to affect what's happening."

Dyche expects to have an almost fully fit squad to choose from tonight, with Ben Mee available after a thigh injury, and Ross Wallace set to step up his comeback with another behind-closed-doors game this week.

Dyche was looking at a friendly for the winger, who has been sidelined since August, last week but instead opted to include him with the rest of the squad on a warm weather training camp in Spain.

Danny is a great lad and a fantastic prospect.

If or when he goes I wish him all the very best

He'll command a massive fee

And if there's one manager to spend well it'd be ginger Moriniho!

NO NAY NEVER

Yourself and C.C have just shown how deluded you are,"no-ones for sale"? and you believe it.?Every player has a price and if its a right price and the player wants to go,he will go.That happens in every club,what makes you think Burnley are the exception.?

I can't see Ings being with you next season, so this season is probably your one and only chance of promotion. I can't see you finishing in the top two, and even making the playoffs won't be easy, as this is a very tight league. Yes, it is safe to say that you will be a championship club next year. Once Ings goes other key players i.e Trippier will want out. And that means promotion dreams next year are all but over.

Whereas our best players won't be sold, we are still making quality signings, and our rubbish is being jettisoned quick sharp. A return to our dominance over you can't come soon enough.

Unless you go up it all means nothing at the end of the season. And the disappointment of not going up will hang around your necks like a lead balloon. Your best players wanting out will confound your misery.

Leicester and QPR will be in the top two. If you can make the playoffs you will have a slim chance of going up, but I honestly feel teams like Forrest and Derby have a bit more about them than Burnley. And you can’t miscount the fact that we could even claim the last playoff place. I would love to meet you lot in the playoff final. So you’ve a fat to no chance of going up.

Not really, it means everything to be able to look down on you toothless morons for another season, watching you stumble from one disaster to the next. I can sense your panic at our chances of promotion, you are starting to worry and trying to disguise it. We are now one point off an automatic promotion spot at the end of January, with a good run of games coming up. We have a very strong chance at automatic promotion which is a horrifying thought to all you no-dads if ever there was one.

Of course the play-off's is a second route, and I'm sure you've see how well we perform in play-off's. However to suggest that we would suffer in any way after this season is simply absurd. The team that will really struggle next season is your shower, with transfer embargo's, massive losses, further extreme cost cutting required to reduce your overheads, and ultimately a further weakening of your already weak squad. It's looking grim for you jibs.

3 points for Burnley at Ewood in March and perhaps you'll wind that neck in. Imagine that, Burnley taking the 3 points that brings us promotion at the end of the season while Blackburn continue to flounder in mid-table.

Could it really happen?

Danny going nowhere this window.... Confirmed. Forget it rovers.
Who knows what'll happen in the summer, yes, of course he could go, so could rhodes or anyone one for that matter.
All l know is that our club is in much better shape than yours, how can you not agree?
Better financially, better structure, much better manager and a better squad of players all playing for each other. Results have proven this all season.
You probably have bigger names, but with that comes bigger egos (and bigger wages). All you have to do is look and see how our good to average players have that "never say die attitude"
You just cant beat that.

I need something to help me imagine what you beating us will feel like, as i've no point of reference to go off.

And as for us stumbling around from one disaster to another, forget it, those days are gone.

The only reasons why you are above us are - our early season goalkeeping errors and not providing Rhodes with a suitable partner until recently. Both problems are now rectified.

You've absolutely no chance of getting three points off us at Ewood. And that could be the difference between you going up and staying down. Poetic justice if you ask me.

3 points for Burnley at Ewood in March and perhaps you'll wind that neck in. Imagine that, Burnley taking the 3 points that brings us promotion at the end of the season while Blackburn continue to flounder in mid-table.

Could it really happen?
I need something to help me imagine what you beating us will feel like, as i've no point of reference to go off.

And as for us stumbling around from one disaster to another, forget it, those days are gone.

The only reasons why you are above us are - our early season goalkeeping errors and not providing Rhodes with a suitable partner until recently. Both problems are now rectified.

You've absolutely no chance of getting three points off us at Ewood. And that could be the difference between you going up and staying down. Poetic justice if you ask me.
I can understand the need to banter and I can understand you having the view that we won't get three points off you at Ewood. I can't understand how it could be "poetic justice" if ir prevented us from going down. Why poetic justice?
I won't embarrass you by asking you to read what I have actually written, oops sorry, I already have. Have you re-read what I actually put yet, there you go, I didn’t say “if ir prevented us from going down” (sic), whatever that may mean.
I don’t know you lot and your constant **** ups. Trust me, come the end of the season, you lot will be in tears.

The only panic round here adcr is that you desperately need to make a play off place likely this season which is looking unlikely as you will probably need to average close to 2 points a game to achieve it. 76 points has been the figure in virtually all seasons, last season being a major exception.
I sense the panic in your desire to get there however given your recent performances against serious play off contenders I think your optimism is a touch giddy.
Your promotion / relegation campaign for next season will be based on a potential transfer embargo on top of offloading many key players to avoid further financial penalty. You are currently offloading players to get in cheap bargain basement players and loanees - can't see Venky millions there can you?
Keep living your dream that reality won't happen, failure this season for you looks like a major bubble burst scenario and the days of being rivals to Man U (Which their fans laugh at btw as they see you as a tin pot club) will be exactly that, dreeeeam, dream, dream, dream, dream.
No malice on my part, just think you are completely deluded if you think your team is capable of promotion this season. Still nice for fans of all small clubs to have those dreams though.

I’ve been wondering for some time why Jason Shackell has never been mentioned as a transfer target. He is a really good centre half and captain. I know Derby fans still want him back. If Blackburn want £3.5 million for Dann and get it then how is Shackell worth?

Blind leading the Blind! Dominating their position as the Joke of East Lancashire, Wovers slow painful death continues no matter how much the venkys throw at it.

Have you re-read what I actually put yet, there you go, I didn’t say “if ir prevented us from going down” (sic), whatever that may mean. I don’t know you lot and your constant **** ups. Trust me, come the end of the season, you lot will be in tears.[/p][/quote]You wrote "poetic justice if you ask me". Let's try again eh? Why is it poetic justice? No fobbing off with 10 tons of thicko nonsense this time. RobH2O

Well, I've certainly stirred the hornets’ nest here.
In regards to "poetic justice", the dictionary definition is “The rewarding of virtue and the punishment of vice, often in an especially appropriate or ironic manner". I don't think it needs explaining which club is the virtuous one.

Mcclaret, I don't know what Venky's have planned for next season, but if they were that bothered about the consequences of breaking the ffp rules, then I think the likes of Rhodes and co would be long gone. We have even spent money this transfer window, so they can't be that bothered. I think you are right in that it will be a very difficult task to get to the playoffs this year, but in saying that we are still only 3 points off a play-off place, so in my mind it’s game on.

I can’t help thinking that Burnley have now peaked (to early alas) and are now going to slide away, and that we are a team that is rebuilding and getting stronger all the time. Next year will be our season, we may well face an embargo next year, but so will many of our rivals, so we all start on a level playing field.

Anyway can’t wait for the derby, where you will be able to see for yourselves, just who is the best team in east lancs.

No one outside prune had heard of Venkys, let alone knew what their Business was about. Now their turnover is in the Billions, job done. More free publicity this year as FFPs come into force, the fines, embargo's and point deductions, all aimed at the club and will have no effect on their business concerns, or personal fortunes.

Believe all you want they care about what happens to their publicity machine, fact is they don't. They've save billions on advertising, once you've served their purpose they'll be off.

To quote you:
"if they were that bothered about the consequences of breaking the ffp rules, then I think the likes of Rhodes and co would be long gone. We have even spent money this transfer window, so they can't be that bothered."

I suspect they don't know what FFP is, after all, they didn't realise you could get relegated from the Premier League. Given their flagrant spending habits in recent times, and the continuous signing of players (someone should tell GB about quality, not quantity - you can only play 11 at a time) when the FFP rules kick in then I do believe Rovers are going to have some significant problems to deal with, which will make Burnley look like millionaires row in comparison.
