Burnley have no fears over striker Danny Ings

First published in Sport

BURNLEY manager Sean Dyche insists he does not fear the January transfer window, after receiving assurances from the board that there is no pressure to sell to balance the books.

The Clarets reported a £7.6m loss for the last financial year, although a chunk of that was recovered by the summer sale of Charlie Austin.

Danny Ings has filled the goalscoring void by netting 19 times for high flying Burnley, leading him to be tracked by a number of Premier League and top end Championship clubs in the first half of the season.

But with chairmen John Banaszkiewicz and Mike Garlick expecting to break even this season they have stressed there is no need for further sales to balance the books.

"The club have made the financial position clear but they've also made clear that we're solid financially," said Dyche.

"We haven't got bucket loads of money to spend, which is why we carry a small squad, but we're in a solid position so I think there are some wise men who run the club and they'll deal with the situation as appropriate if and when.

"But there have been no calls to me."

Asked if he fears a big offer for Ings, who scored twice in the 3-2 New Year's Day win over Huddersfield Town, Dyche added: "I don't worry about any of that sort of stuff because how can I do anything about it - if someone wishes to make a big offer it's their prerogative."

With 19 goals for the Clarets, and two for the England Under 21s, Ings has attracted plenty of attention.

"There were a lot of questions last season over the use of him, where he was playing, it's all part of his development. He played wide, he played inside, as a number 10. He's certain playing with freedom, that's definitely what we offer him," said Dyche.

"People say we play an old fashioned 4-4-2. I'd like to see him as an old fashioned player, he's not like the ones I used to clod-hop and nudge and smash and get smashed. I don't remember too many of him around!

"He's a very good player, he's learning and he's got a great desire to learn."

History tells us that the board have sense to not sell in the January window - Any deal would be at the end of the year or maybe like with Zaha done now with a loan till the ebd of the year back to us - We know we are a small selling club as are a lot of clubs in this division - its just a lot do not realize it yet!!

Why risk the possibility of a 100m plus windfall if even 10m was offered for him?? - would make no financial sense at all - and we do have switched on people running the club.

A very young and gifted player who should attract a good deal of interest in the summer - And you never know - if the clarets achieve the impossible he could well just stay!!

Its obvious Danny wants to leave, so rather than keep an unhappy player, just let him go. He has done his bit for you already.
If he was happy at the club, he would have come out and said so by now. Just let him go.

With an inability to distinguish between fantasy and reality, you really do need help. Sat there with your latex dolls costume on, eager to spout your delusional bile. Then pat yourself on the back, with one of your multiple persona's.
Mr Ings has not and will not use you as his spokesperson. His staying or going is his and the clubs decision, not ours.

Exactly right. He wants to leave so let him. He can double his wages by moving to anther championship club or treble them by moving to the prem. He wants out so let him go.

Are you sleeping with him ?, no i didnt think so, hes not that desperate and you are that ugly, why would he. He is not going anywhere, on the other hand if you want a one way ticket to Thialand im sure all the Burnley fans would love to club together just to be rid of your SH*TE on these pages.
We are not happy you are on here so will you go, please.

Reading between the lines of Dyche's cliché ridden inane ramblings its clear he is resigned to the reality that if a cash offer comes in Ings will be off. There's a difference between not actively having to sell a player and then being forced into it when the money is too good to turn down.

Burnley's financial woes are well documented. Even after selling the star man last summer they still made a multi-million pound loss. With gates of 12,000 despite being top of the league and no external investment what chance do they have of retaining an England Under 21 striker with an impressive record this season?

I understand Ings only has 18 months left to run on his contract and is probably on relative peanuts by Championship standards. It won't take big wages to prise him away from Turf Moor. I see another Austin situation developing whereby Ings will have his head turned and by August at the latest he will be sold for less than his market value because Burnley can't afford to lose him for nothing in 2015.
