Since the arrival of Sean Dyche as the manager of Burnley in 2002, the Clarets have had their ups and downs. They have been through several relegations and promotions but have fought hard to reach this position. Without the presence of a prominent player, Burnley are 13th in the Premier League and Dyche’s side have rubbed shoulders with the mightiest in the Premier League. Burnley’s key success also has been the reason the club have stood behind Sean Dyche despite a very inconsistent performance across the last few seasons. Dyche has built a side which is capable of facing any team in the world and wouldn’t leave the field without giving a tough fight. The club also has grown financially after repaying all of their debts and are currently in a much better shape and can challenge fellow clubs for any kind of transfer.
Three Players Burnley Should Retain
The success story of Keane has been the highlight of Burnley’s season. His rise in the prominence has compelled Gareth Southgate to include him in the England squad and he gave a pretty impressive performance in the last match against Lithuania as the Three Lions kept a clean sheet in the match. Keane who came through the ranks of Manchester United was sold to Burnley in 2015 and since then has become one of the best defenders in the Premier League.
Keane’s talent has triggered the interest among a number of clubs including Everton as Ronald Koeman is aiming to strengthen his defence. Kane who has a contract till 2018 is one of the key players behind heir resurgence and the Clarets have to make sure that the player remains at Turf Moor.
Gray hasn’t been impressive this term as he has found the net only eight times so far. This is his first ever stint in the English top flight and he has been encouraged by his consistent presence in the starting lineup. Having moved from Brentford, Gray has flourished rapidly and his antics in front of the goal had appeared to have provoked an interest from West Ham United who reportedly had made a bid of £15m for the player. Sam Vokes and Ashley Barnes have had a season to forget so Dyche would be very keen to retain the player for another season.
The 30-year-old has been named in the England’s squad alongside Michael Keane. He has been a rage this season and has made the most number of saves in the Premier League. Heaton has thrived under Dyche and is at the peak of his career which will definitely attract a lot of interest from other clubs but the Clarets should keep a hold on him.
