BURNLEY are getting closer to making their first signing of the summer.

But boss Sean Dyche said the Clarets wouldn't rush into deals just to make sure they have new faces in before the Europa League second qualifying round tie with Aberdeen.

However, the Turf Moor boss revealed he'd been speaking with chairman Mike Garlick and chief executive Dave Baldwin on Friday as deals edge closer.

"I've had conversations with the chairman and the chief executive today, we’re down the road with a couple of situations but nothing that’s going to be news tonight (Friday)," Dyche said.

Players must be registered by Friday, July 20 to feature in the first leg at Pittodrie on Thursday, July 26, but Dyche insists deals won't be forced through just to have players available.

"We’ve got to be careful with that," he said. "Ideally you get your numbers in early but we all know how hard that is, clubs way bigger than Burnley are struggling to get their numbers in early because of the way the market is.

"We’re not going to sign someone for the sake of it, that wouldn’t be good practice. It would be helpful to get players in earlier because they can bond with the group and get used to how I like the fitness levels and how we want the team, but the market is the market."
