SEAN Dyche believes Burnley could be seen as a 'more attractive proposition' for transfer targets this summer after they're successful season.

The Clarets need four points from their final three league games to guarantee European football next term, but they could wrap that up as early as this weekend against Brighton if results go for them.

Having started the last two Premier League campaigns as amongst the favourites for the drop, Burnley are set for a top-seven finish this term and that relative security could be a help when it comes to the transfer market.

"There are some agents throwing players out who maybe wouldn’t have done before," Dyche said.

"In the past, it was: Are Burnley going to stay in the Premier League? Not doing us down, just because it’s a big challenge on an ongoing basis.

"This year has been a strong sign of what we’re about, and maybe we are a more attractive proposition.

"But that still doesn’t guarantee getting the players you want in."

A seventh-placed finish is likely to see Burnley's competitive season beginning in the second qualifying round on July 26, but Dyche insists the thinking will remain the same, even if planning has to change.

"We have to be realistic about the bigger picture plan, which is our recruitment, who do we want in?," he said.

"We can’t cherry pick. There are a few players we think could affect, but even they can get away. It’s about what we can bring in and keep our ears to the ground for the right players, whether we’re in Europe or not."

Dyche said 'we'll wait and see' when asked if he was expecting a busy summer, but said there was no pressure on the club over any departures.

"There’s certain situations we think we can affect more than others," he said.

"We’re not under pressure for outgoings because of the strength of the club now and everyone is in good contract positions.

"Any decision will be down to the club, the chairman, the board and myself. We’re a different animal each year because of what we keep achieving, we get stronger with our players in-house."
