BURNLEY are 'not likely' to make any new signings before tomorrow's domestic transfer deadline, according to manager Sean Dyche.

The Clarets added goalkeeper Will Norris from Wolves and midfielder Dale Stephens from Brighton before the international deadline earlier this month.

But despite having an additional window to make signings from within the EFL, Dyche is not expecting any new faces before tomorrow's 5pm cut-off.

"Do we want to sign players? Yes. Is that challenge ongoing? Yes. Does it look likely we will bring anyone in before the window? No, I don't think so," said Dyche, who explained that finding the right players to challenge the squad had proved to be a challenge when it came to recruitment.

“It starts with ourselves, the chairman and the board decide what we can do, but there has to be alignment – there’s no point bringing in players for the sake of it, they’ve got to add value to the team or future value.

“Some players we’ve brought in in the past have been development-style players.

“But we’re not that club now, we’ve moved on. I think we should consider ourselves to have enough clout to start looking at players who are more game ready.

“I’m not remotely saying we should be looking at the same players as the top six, but when you look at the outlays of the Brightons and Sheffield Uniteds, I think there’s a moment in time when you think ‘where are we really at?’ We’re in very good financial shape, how much do we intend on putting in?”

He added: "Money has always been an issue here, it has always been something that is highly debated from myself and the chairman and the board.

"Inevitably they make the decisions and I have made that clear for a long time now.

"I have talked about stretch and how we can stretch the model, we are in very good shape financially I know that.

"But the finance is still there to safeguard the club and that is one of the paramount concerns of the chairman and the board so I have always worked within the parameters and the guidelines of what is given to be and that is what I intend to do."

Nevertheless, Dyche stressed that he was happy with his current squad, whose Premier League programme resumes after the international break with a trip to West Brom on Monday night, where they will look to earn their first points of the season having lost their opening three games.

"People do forget that we have some very good players here," said the Burnley boss.

"Do we want to freshen it or bring players in, or would I, yes I would.

"You need to know what is available to do that, both players and finance which is always a bit tricky here.

"But I don't forget the group that I have got and the quality and depth of experience particularly, not always numbers, that I have got here.

"I certainly believe this group is more than capable and now it is about showing that on the pitch and getting results."
