Burnley manager Sean Dyche remains hopeful that he can further strengthen his squad before the close of the transfer window.

Dyche has added seven players to his ranks since Burnley won promotion back to the Premier League and has spent relatively little on his new signings.

He has been linked with moves for Wigan’s James McArthur and Watford’s Lewis McGugan, and Dyche is exploring the market after starting the season with a 3-1 home defeat by Chelsea.

"There's no real superstar names, we've brought in the same kind of players we've had," he said.

"It's not disrespectful but you look at Chelsea, signing players for £30million and that's not our world.

"We've not got names that light up the average fan out there but football people know who they are and what they're about and they're an important part of the unit.

"It won't be about individuals for us, it will about the group and how we go about our business as a collective.

"We're looking to really build that group still, there's time yet. There is finance available but it's not endless, we still have to use it wisely and cut our cloth accordingly."

Meanwhile, Dyche insists it is no time for his Burnley side to go on the defensive after starting with both Danny Ings and Lukas Jutkiewicz up front against Chelsea.

With a trip to Swansea next up on Saturday, Dyche has vowed to continue a positive approach in the opening weeks of the campaign.

"We want to be brave in how we play," he said. "We were last season and we want to experiment with it of course.

"Over the season that might change slightly but we want to be brave in the early part of the season, to fathom out where we are and how we play, how that works against better opposition.

"That was my thinking behind playing two centre-forwards (against Chelsea), it's something I like to do.

"We obviously know the competition has increased, the power and ability of the opposition has increased and we want to attempt to play in that brave manner generally, but we're not naive, we might have to be flexible as the season develops."
