SEAN Dyche said Scott Arfield and Dean Marney are 'in the loop' over their Burnley futures.

The duo are out of contract at Turf Moor this summer but are yet to sign new deals, but Dyche insists the club will be talking to them on an 'ongoing basis'.

Arfield has come into the team recently after Robbie Brady's season-ending injury, making five successive league starts to move within 12 appearances of bringing up his double century with the Clarets.

Marney was back on the bench at Old Trafford after 11 months out with his second cruciate knee ligament injury in two years. The 33-year-old has made 221 appearances for the club.

Asked about their futures, Dyche said: "We’ll be talking to them on an ongoing basis as we always do with all of the players. They’re all in the loop of where they are and what the situation is and what our thoughts are.

"We always do that but I’m respectful of it and it’s private."

While Burnley will look to be active in January Dyche doesn't expect to get any business done early in the transfer window.

"It’s more about availability in this window," he said. "It’s tough for that reason. It’s very unusual to get anything done early in the window."
