Dyche has brought in eight new players to Turf Moor so far this summer as his side have enjoyed an unbeaten start to the new Championship campaign, picking up seven points from a possible nine.

The departures of Charlie Austin and Martin Paterson mean that Burnley's attacking options are thin on the ground and Dyche says that work is ongoing to get deals completed before September 2.

"If not, the loan window then opens, but it's an ongoing process," he told the Burnley Express.

"I think we, as ever, are trying to add people to the squad, and that hasn't changed. We want to build a depth to the squad when finances allow.

"We are doing our business as privately as we can, behind the scenes, and we feel that's appropriate.

"We're not powerful enough to give information out because the people who do speak openly about transfers are usually the ones who have lots of money.

"We have to shop accordingly. We have eyes on the market, but it takes everything to fall into place."

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
