The former Swindon striker started his third successive friendly on Tuesday night as Burnley beat Tranmere 2-1 and his manager says last season's top scorer, who was set for a move to Hull until issues with his medical, is in good shape ahead of the season opener next weekend.

"He's good, he looks fit and well," Dyche told the Lancashire Telegraph. "We're just building him up ready for the season.

"From my point of view, I'm delighted (he's still at Burnley). He's a solid boy and it (missing out on his move to Hull) is not the biggest hardship, if you've come from playing for Poole Town, working on a building site.

"There's plenty of good things going on for him, and the fact he's fit and well is one of them.

"We're still letting the dust settle, we want to get him doing what he does best, enjoy his football and score some goals.

"Football has a way of sorting things out one way or another."
