Manager Sean Dyche has admitted he’s still looking to strengthen the Burnley side, especially in the forward positions following the departure of Andre Gray.

Speaking to the Official Site as he met with the media ahead of this weekend’s game against West Bromwich Albion, Dyche again repeated that he’d been delighted with our business so far this summer but he was still on the look out for new additions.

Opening with Stephen Ward’s new contract and the competition for places he feels we now have, the gaffer explained.

‘It`s good for Wardy. I think he`s been a good servant to us and I think the fans have accepted what he is. I think he has got true competition now with Charlie Taylor and I think that can help him to continue what he`s doing and to put pressure on him, because Charlie has done well in pre-season. We want that real in-house competition and he has got that, but he is certainly deserving of his new contract.’

With five new arrivals so far this summer, Dyche went on to say that he was hopeful of adding a few more to the group if he could before the transfer window ends and obviously a striker features in that.

‘Our intention has been that all summer. We didn`t want to lose players, but there is a reality within that. We are in the market, we are looking and there are there certain situations we`re feeling quite positive about.’

He added.

‘We`ve done that before and then they go away but we`re hopeful we can get certain things done.’
