Burnley manager Eddie Howe insists he expects wide man Keith Treacy to return for pre-season training next month.
The 23-year-old, who ended last season on loan at Sheffield Wednesday, has been linked with a permanent move to Hillsborough as well as a number of other Championship clubs, including Barnsley.
Republic of Ireland international Treacy failed to make an impact at Turf Moor last season after signing from Preston.
But Howe fully expects Treacy to report back for the Clarets on July 6th, along with the rest of the squad.
"I've said before, I'll never shut the door on him, no one is going to nick him from us," said Howe.
"He did well at Sheffield Wednesday, forced his way into the team, but if he comes back in good shape, he'll fight for his place.
"If we get interest in him, we'll review it.
"His talent has never been in doubt, he could be a fantastic player for us, he has all the attributes you want in a wide man.
"The few times he did turn it on for us, he was excellent, and we'd like to see him at his very best."
