SEAN Dyche is confident Burnley's flying start to the Premier League season can help attract players to the club in the January transfer window.

Although they sit sixth after 17 games of the campaign the Clarets are likely to be active next month, with a winger on the radar following Robbie Brady's season-ending injury.

And Dyche believes Burnley's brilliant efforts this season to take 31 points already could help convince players to make the move to Turf Moor.

It's not just the success on the pitch that could play a key role in new signings either, with the Clarets chief pointing to the £10.6million training ground development as another tick in the box for potential recruits.

“I think it must help, from a mentality point of view," Dyche said when asked whether Burnley's form this season could make the club a more attractive proposition next month.

"A player who was maybe thinking ‘I’m not sure what sort of season they’ll have’, will now be ‘hang on, they’re certainly a decent concern’, with the stories about the training ground and all that, that changes the overall view.

“Some Championship clubs now have major training grounds, some League 1 clubs have some very decent facilities, and I think that’s changed."

Burnley were active last January, spending £18million on deadline day to bring in Brady and Ashley Westwood and the club broke their transfer record again in the summer with the £15million acquisition of Chris Wood.

The training ground has played a part in the recruitment of those players and Dyche believes it can help sell the club.

“We’re now up to speed, if not slightly in front of it," he said. "You go to Chelsea, Man U, Tottenham, they’re unbelievable, but this is very good for a club like Burnley.

“Certainly it’s enough for players to think ‘yeah, I like it here’. The pitches are second to nine as well, and that adds to it."

While incomings are the priority Dyche said it would be 'foolish' to guarantee that nobody would be leaving the club either.

The Turf chief is keen to keep all his key men at Turf Moor and insists the club is under no pressure to sell, but admits some deals can be just too good to say no to.

"They’re all under decent contracts and situations that are controllable. We’re obviously not under pressure to sell financially," Dyche said.

"It’s foolish to absolutely guarantee nothing can happen. Neymar is a prime example, they made it happen, end of story.

"We’re pretty healthy with contracts here and what contracts people are on."
