Dyche insists Burnley don’t need to sanction Matej Vydra’s sale

Burnley manager Sean Dyche has said that the club don’t require to sanction the sale of any of their players before the transfer deadline on Thursday. Matej Vydra has been linked with a potential departure from the club following his reduced gametime over the past year but Dyche has insisted that the Clarets are not under the pressure to sell.

He told reporters:”Yes, there is every chance. I have made it clear many times, we are not in a position where we need to sell anyone. Any sale will be thought through, it won’t be a case of we need to sell someone, quite obviously after the years in the Premier League and we are not throwing money around. We are not under pressure to sell anyone.”

Vydra made the move from Derby County to the Clarets last summer after contributing 22 goals during the previous campaign at the Championship outfit. However, he struggled for gametime over the course of the season and he was restricted to just 17 appearances across all competitions, while contributing only a couple of goals in the process.

As such, the Czech Republic international has been fancied to pursue a fresh challenge with interest from Sheffield United and Leeds in the Championship, but so far, there has been no progress in terms of the transfer deal. Elsewhere, the Clarets may have a busy end to the transfer window with reports emerging that Leicester City could seek to lure James Tarkowski from Turf Moor.

The Foxes recently sanctioned the sale of Harry Maguire to Manchester United after receiving a world-record £85m fee for a defender and they could use part of the sum to tempt the Clarets into sanctioning the sale of Tarkowski. Burnley start their new Premier League season with a home game against Southampton.
