SEAN Dyche has a 'good amount' to work with during the January transfer window as he seeks to strengthen his Burnley side.

But the Clarets chief said the figures were 'within the reality' of the club as he admitted the winter window is a difficult one to operate in.

Dyche is in the market for reinforcements at centre back and out wide this month, with the pressing nature of adding to the depth on the wing highlighted by the hamstring injury Scott Arfield picked up on Thursday.

He said the club's finances were looking 'really good' after the profit made in the summer when Michael Keane and Andre Gray left Turf Moor for Everton and Watford respectively in deals that were close to £50million.

"I think we were around the four to six million pound profit margin in the summer for player trading. The health in the finances are really good," Dyche said.

"The chairman gives me a good amount to work with but still within the reality of Burnley FC. They are open minded to what needs to happen. We are in a good situation."

Transfer fees continue to spiral though, with Virgil van Dijk's move from Southampton to Liverpool this month already setting a new world record fee for a defender.

"The market has gone outside the realms of money. It’s about whether you want to pay it or, it’s not about whether it’s appropriate any more," Dyche said.

"Teams run on a different system now. They used to be a balance to the way a club works. Even the big clubs would buy and sell accordingly.

"If you look now nobody is really bothered anymore. They just spend whatever is appropriate to get the next player in.

"The business model of any given club is pushed aside somewhat. A few us, not just us, who have to make sure the business is run properly and appropriately for the size of the club but not all do that.

"There’s always money there, there’s no question of that. There’s an appropriate amount of money of course.

"It’s not an easy situation, the reality of the market. January is usually a tough period as regards to getting them."
