SEAN Dyche admitted any more incomings at Turf Moor during the January transfer window are ‘unlikely’.

But the Clarets chief hasn’t yet given up hope of further strengthening his ranks and would like to add another centre half to the squad.

The Turf boss refused to rule out a loan move for Arsenal defender Rob Holding.

The 22-year-old has made 19 appearances for the Gunners this season but could be allowed to leave on loan should Arsene Wenger complete a deal for West Brom’s Jonny Evans.

With James Tarkowski a doubt for the trip to Newcastle tomorrow, Burnley could yet bring in another defender, something Dyche is keen to do anyway.

But the Burnley boss insists deals won’t be done just for the sake of it.

“There are a couple of things that are possible but I don’t think they’re probable,” Dyche said of the transfer latest.

“The reason you can’t say never is that things change quickly. You’ve got to be ready and flexible. It’s not a no but not a probability.

“We’ve enough injuries to make us look at different possibilities. But we’re not going to make signings for the sake of it. I believe in the players we’ve got.”

Asked about links with Holding, Dyche added: “There are lots of different players that interest me. They’re not all gettable.”

While Dyche has solved Burnley’s shortage of numbers out wide with the additions of Georges-Kevin Nkoudou on loan from Tottenham and the permanent capture of Aaron Lennon from Everton, he admitted another centre half would be beneficial.

The Clarets have been operating with just three senior central defenders this term, with Kevin Long providing cover for Tarkowski and Ben Mee.

Burnley recalled Tom Anderson from League Two side Port Vale on Monday but the 24-year-old could yet go back out, on loan the fitness of Tarkowski or a new addition permitting.

But Dyche insists the heart of defence is now the only area of the squad that needs tinkering with to find the right balance.

“Usually, you try to carry four (centre backs) if you can, who are all runners and riders. Not really younger ones, but ones who are pushing,” he said.

“But it’s hard. Everywhere else, we’re pretty balanced, other than losing Robbie (Brady) and longer-term stuff.

“So we’ve worked hard to find that balance, and I’d suggest generally, apart from the centre-half position, and Robbie’s injury, I’ve found that balance.”

Dyche has ruled out senior players leaving Turf Moor before Wednesday’s 11pm deadline.

Ashley Barnes has been linked with Chelsea and Crystal Palace recently but Dyche confirmed he is going nowhere.

He added: “Some of the younger lads might go out, but the main first team no.”

Dyche also said Burnley would be ‘flexible’ if required tomorrow night as they juggle a game in the North East against Newcastle with deadline day.

It was a situation the club had to manage last season when Ashley Westwood and Brady signed on the day the Clarets beat Leicester City at Turf Moor, with the deal for Brady announced at half-time.

“It’s not perfect,” Dyche said of playing on deadline day. “I found out at half-time last year that we’d signed Robbie Brady, but you’ve got to have a cut off at some point. If we have to be flexible on the day, that’s the way it goes.”
