Burnley manager coy on interest in Everton attacker

Burnley manager Sean Dyche has refused to comment on whether his side are interested in signing Aaron Lennon from Everton.

A report from earlier on this week suggested that the Clarets had a bid accepted by the Toffees for the 30-year-old and were awaiting personal terms to be agreed upon.

Lennon was not involved in Everton’s 1-1 draw with West Brom on Saturday and this marked the first game that he missed for the Merseysiders since Sam Allardyce was appointed as manager of the club.

Allardyce may be open to a sale in order to bring in funds to the club after they spent on recruiting Theo Walcott and Cenk Tosun this month.

Dyche has refused to comment on any speculation though by saying, “There are different situations that possibly could open up.

“I have always maintained I will talk about my players, there are players out there we have been linked with, and they are not my players.

“We’ve been linked with a lot of people, which always happens this time of year, it’s possibilities and probabilities.”
