BURNLEY'S battle in the transfer market goes on with Sean Dyche saying no deals are imminent.

The Clarets boss has managed to add Jay Rodriguez and Erik Pieters to his squad so far this summer and more incomings are on the agenda ahead of the start of the new Premier League season.

However, Dyche has reiterated that at Turf Moor it is about getting the right players at the right price - something that may only happen later in the window.

When asked if he had received any encouragement in the pursuit of new signings Dyche said: "No encouragement, it costs money and money is difficult to find at this place."

Pieters arrived for a modest outlay, believed to be around £1.5 million, after falling down the pecking order at Stoke.

Rodriguez has returned to his hometown club in a deal that will be worth around £10 million due a clause in his West Bromwich Albion contract that kicked in when they did not return to the top flight at the first time of asking.

There is also likely to be movement on the outgoing front as well but Dyche insists the club do not have to sell anyone despite reported interest in a number of his key men.

Tom Heaton continues to be linked with Aston Villa as he enters the final year of his contract.

Both Nick Pope and Joe Hart have played a full 90 minutes so far in pre-season and it may be that Heaton gets his turn with a trip to Championship side Wigan Athletic next up on Saturday.

Villa's initial offer was a reported £7 million for the 33-year-old former Manchester United man, their interest dating back to a possible loan move in the Championship last season.

Heaton went on to re-establish himself as the Clarets number one ahead of Hart.

Pope also signed a new long-term contract at the end of the campaign having played just three games all season due to a shoulder injury picked up against Aberdeen in the Europa League 12 months ago.
