Dyche aims to get balance right

Sean Dyche has promised that he will not be making a raft of signings this summer even though Burnley will be involved in the Europa League next term.

The Clarets qualified for the competition after finishing seventh in the Premier League this season. They will be involved in the second qualifying round of the Europa League, which is set to take place in July.

Dyche is unfazed by a possible fixture pile-up though and is focused only on ensuring he does not upset the balance of his team.

"We have to be mindful not to overfill the club, because you lose some of the attention and detail we want to put on players, for them to continue maturing," he said.

"We're still working at 23 outfield players, which is quite high for us, so we don't want to overfill it, but the main thing is the quality of the players.

"There's a fine balance. I spoke to managers at bigger clubs and they had to thin down their squads. I don't think we're there yet, but you do think 'how many do we actually need?'"

Burnley are 6/4 to be relegated in 2018/19, while Brighton are 40/1 to go down, Huddersfield Town 1/33 and Bournemouth 150/1.
