Should Burnley turn to Middlesbrough defender if they lose star player?

Keane has been strongly linked with a move back to his former club Manchester United while England goalkeeper Tom Heaton has also reportedly been targeted by a number of other clubs.

Sean Dyche says Burnley are in a "strong position" over defender Michael Keane despite speculation linking him with Manchester United and Liverpool.

West Ham spoilt their end-of-season party slightly by winning 2-1 at Turf Moor on the final day but gloss could not really be taken off the club's highest league placing (16th) since 1975.

"It's always a good stimulus when they see players coming in and they have to fight for their own shirt, so we've got to add more".

'The only thing we know is that we're in a strong position, ' Dyche said when asked about the future of the centre-half.

Keane now has one year left on his contract with Burnley, however Sky Sports reported that Dyche believes if they don't receive a suitable price for the defender, he would be happy to stay at the club.

"He's (Keane) got a year to run on his contract". I am, he is, the agent is, his family are, our club are.

Six months later, he joined Burnley on a permanent transfer. We're learning. We're looking at what we can do next, how can we improve it, how can we stick to what we do, roughly, but mould it and add to it. It looks to me like it is going to be a tough market'.

'That is the next challenge, not just adapting this side to what they have learned this season but adding to it where we can.

Burnley might even have started their season-ending party with a win had they built on Sam Vokes' opening goal, but Sofiane Feghouli and Andre Ayew responded for the visitors. It's not about replacing people, it's about adding competition. "No one has formally approached us, so he's a Burnley player - and will continue to be so", Garlick told talkSPORT.
