Sean Dyche targets striker in January

Burnley manager Sean Dyche reveals that he will attempt to sign a new striker during the January transfer window.

Burnley manager Sean Dyche has admitted that he is keen to add to his attacking ranks during the January transfer window.

Danny Ings and Sam Vokes have shared the side's workload in the final third of the pitch with the duo scoring a combined total of 25 goals, but with Ings currently suffering with an ankle problem, Dyche has revealed that he wants to strengthen his striking department.

The 42-year-old told BBC Radio Lancashire: "We'll be looking again in January because we know what we need and hopefully we can look to reinforce.

"We know what we've got, we know the squad that we're working with and we know the challenges of having the numbers that we've got."

Burnley are currently sitting in third position in the Championship table, but they are without a win in five matches.
