BURNLEY could be set for a busy transfer deadline day as the Clarets look to strengthen their squad.

Striker Sam Vokes appears to be closing in on a move to Championship side Stoke City, with Peter Crouch potentially moving in the other direction as part of a deal.

The Clarets are seeking in excess of £10m for the Wales international striker who has made 30 appearances for the club this season.

Vokes was an unused sub on Tuesday night when Burnley drew 2-2 with Manchester United in the Premier League.

Burnley are also keen on Birmingham City forward Che Adams.

The Clarets have taken an interest in the 22-year-old who is also wanted by Southampton.

Adams has scored 15 goals for the Blues this season including three in his last three games.

A move for the former Sheffield United man could be dependent on Vokes departing while the Saints need to move former Burnley striker Charlie Austin, linked with Blackburn Rovers, on to fund their pursuit of Adams.

Elsewhere, Dyche rubbished speculation linking Ben Gibson with a loan exit.

The defender only arrived at the club in the summer in a £15m deal.

He has had an injury-hit start to life at Turf Moor with two hernia operations limiting him to just five appearances for the club so far.

But he is now fully fit and ready to fight for his place.

The Clarets boss was also interested in bringing in a wide player this month but the return from injury of Johann Berg Gudmundsson, Robbie Brady being back after a ban and the breakout form of Academy graduate Dwight McNeil means adding an extra body in that position is not a necessity.

And it seems highly unlikely that one of Burnley's three England international goalkeepers will leave today.

Tom Heaton has displaced Joe Hart as No.1 in recent weeks while Nick Pope is now fully fit after a shoulder injury and featured in the Clarets' two FA Cup games.

Dyche knows he won't be able to keep all three happy but it could well be the summer before there are any potential moves.

One keeper that has left Turf Moor, albeit on loan, is youngster Conor Mitchell who has joined Northern Ireland side Lingfield.
