SEAN Dyche insists he's not concerned about Burnley's lack of transfer activity so far as the club continue to work on deals.

The Clarets have been frustrated so far in their attempts to strengthen this summer, with just under three weeks to go until the transfer window closes on Thursday, August 9.

A double bid for West Brom pair Craig Dawson and Jay Rodriguez was rebuffed earlier in the window and both players were part of the Baggies squad for their friendly with Aberdeen last night, while the Clarets also have interest in Swansea duo Alfie Mawson and Sam Clucas.

Speaking after Burnley's 2-0 win at Macclesfield Town on Friday night, Dyche said: "I’m not concerned. It’s just the reality.

"If we don’t get them in we’ve still got to play, if we do get them in hopefully they will do well. The season will go on regardless."

Burnley may have drawn a blank so far in this window but Dyche insists getting deals done with the way the club is run is difficult, highlighting the figures Liverpool were able to pay Roma for goalkeeper Alisson as a contrast.

"There's things progressing, but it’s Burnley, it’s not Liverpool, £66million on Alisson," the Clarets chief said.

"Those deals get done. It was ‘Alisson might sign for Liverpool’, it felt like an hour later and he had signed for Liverpool.

"That is what we do, it’s difficult. We’re honest and we get questioned, you don’t be honest and you get questioned, you can’t win.

"The fact is it’s really difficult because the club is ran in a certain manner. We’ve managed to make it make sense, but it’s not easy to make it make sense.

"It’s about getting the right players at the right price and making sure they fit the trading model. There’s a lot of parameters that have to make a signing and it’s really difficult."

The closure of the transfer window has been brought forward this summer, to the Thursday before the start of the Premier League season.

But it's made no difference in terms of clubs being able to get business done earlier.

"Most seasons not much gets done until these stages and the window has made it more condensed and more active," said Dyche.

"They’ll probably continue to revisit the window I think over time. Everybody knows it’s coming so clubs are holding and holding.

"From a football point of view it’s right, because you should have your players in the camp for the start of the season, but from a business point of view, if it was like the old days and you could do it all year clubs would have to sell at any given time, now they know it’s coming so they wait and wait and push and push to maximise every drop."
