Burnley boss Sean Dyche says the club is in “unbelievably good shape” and they won’t be under any pressure to sell Michael Keane to another club.
The defender has been linked with Liverpool and Manchester United following an impressive season that has seen him earn international recognition with England.
Dyche understands that players will likely outgrow Burnley and have to move on in the future but the 45-year-old claims they are in a position to do it on their own terms.
“We are a club that is in unbelievably good shape. There is no pressure to do anything,” Dyche told talkSPORT.
“It is more of case of doing what is right in any situation. If all parties agree, that might be something the club have to look at just by the realities of what it is in the Premier League but we are certainly in very healthy shape so we don’t have to make any decisions for any other reason than we think it is appropriate
“It is the balance of what you are doing at a club like this.
“You want your players to be successful, which is good for them, good for the team, good for the club. On the other hand, that does bring interest.
“It is something we have become used to. We have been fortunate in the sense that for four years now we have had something to play for.
“We have had people been talking about our players every year. It is a challenge for a club like this because we are not a superpower of the division and players will eventually outgrow us or move on or be hunted and that is just the way it goes.”
