Dyche may be forced to act in January


Sean Dyche could be forced to look for a left-sided midfielder in the transfer window if Robbie Brady's injury is as bad as feared.

Brady was stretchered off during the Clarets’ 1-0 defeat at Leicester City on Saturday and is facing an anxious wait to discover the extend of the knee injury he sustained in a collision with Harry Maguire.

Dyche will have to consider signing a replacement for the Republic of Ireland international if the scans show extensive damage that requires an operation – as that will certainly keep Brady out for a significant portion of the campaign.

The manager will already be aware of players who can come in and fit his profile of young, hungry professionals who can easily integrate into his squad.

It is likely that most of the potential targets will come from within England or Scotland but Clarets scouts have been checking on players from France and Portugal this season.
