Ings has been a revelation for the Clarets this season, helping to fill the void created by Charlie Austin's summer switch to Queens Park Rangers.

He has already found the target on 16 occasions for Burnley, while adding a further two goals to his tally for the England U21s.

His exploits are reported to be drawing admiring glances from the Premier League, with goalscorers always in high demand.

Dyche concedes that clubs may be looking at Ings and mulling over an approach, but he insists none have been received as yet and is not overly concerned heading into the January transfer window.

He said in the Burnley Express: "It's the reality of people doing well. If you look across the divisions, forwards get the main headlines, but there are players in different positions at many different clubs - it's just a natural progression of that, for a club like Burnley or a club like Leicester.

"They have players who are going well. I think the boy (Jeffrey) Schlupp was at Manchester United for a period.

"They've got people looking at their players as well. It's just a natural fact. I think it enhances it when you're doing well.

"There isn't any factual interest that I know. No-one has rung me, so that's factual, but there are a million stories."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
