Burnley manager Sean Dyche has warned the club's board that they'll need to loosen the pursestrings to continue competing in the Premier League. 

The Clarets are set to lose Jeff Hendrick, Aaron Lennon and Joe Hart on free transfers next month and Dyche was critical of the club waiting to offer new deals.

He also says they'll need to spend money in the transfer market in order to replace those departing Turf Moor:

“The days of us nicking Nick Pope for £1.5million, Johann Berg Gudmundsson for £2.2m, James Tarkowski for £4m and Andre Gray for £6m, they’ve gone.

“It’s not the case any more. Leicester signed a right-back, James Justin, who’d had one season playing for Luton for £6.6m last year.

“So where are you going to get those players? They don’t exist. I can’t find them. I haven’t seen too many of them. The landscape of football is changing…

“That’s why for two and a half years I’ve been talking about stretching it.

“It’s not about breaking it, I’d never do that because this club as a collective has built a really good way of working and a really solid foundation. Of course I wouldn’t rip that up – no way.

“But can we stretch it? Yes, I think we can. Does it need stretching? Yes, it does.”
