    New players on Seanís Radar

    Burnley's Sean Dyche a long-term admirer of Aron Gunnarsson, who has rejected Cardiff City contract

    Burnley manager Sean Dyche is a long-term admirer of Cardiff City midfielder Aron Gunnarsson, according to the Daily Mirror [March 13th, page 50].

    The report claims Gunnarsson's future is dependent on Cardiff's promotion this season, after the 28-year-old turned down the Bluebirds' offer of a new contract - with his existing one due to expire in June.

    And Burnley could pounce on the Iceland international for nothing if an agreement cannot be reached in the coming months.

    Our own Iceman will no doubt be tapping him up over the odd Russian Vodka or two.

    Yes but it seems unlikely Cardiff won’t get promotion with Villa losing last night.

    What difference should that make? Even if Cardiff are promoted, an ambitious player might well prefer to sign with one of the more estabished Premiership clubs, particularly one who've proved their Premiership credentials, are already there or thereabouts with regard to European football, as well as a squad of ever more internationally capped players.

    Wow, that was fun to write! Am I really saying that about BFC? Pinch me, perhaps it's all a dream?

    Thanks for picking this up afloat.
    I agree it’s possible but am reminded of the Dale Stephens saga, though his contract had a year to run at the time.

    I thinks Stephens was cute. He got his wage hike, he got the four year contract and he did not have to move back up north!

    Thank the Lord.

    I don't rate him.

    Would have done a Westwood job but we need a bit more.

    Westwood may or may not float everyone's boat but he is excellent in enabling us to keep the ball.

    IMHO he needs a couple of days training with Joey to learn the arts of the dark side when putting his foot in!

    Aye, thats the easy part for Colin, getting a team into the Prem, the hard part is keeping them there and he's not so good at that. But that's Cardiff's problem.

    I still quite like him, he might be a bit of a tw@t, but he does what it says on the tin, you can't ask for more than that.

    One coming out of left field and would dispel the "Dyche only likes British and Irish" players myth, would be to nab on a free transfer the Swansea City midfielder Ki Sung-Yeung.

    He gave us a bit of a roasting in our 1-0 defeat to Swansea City in February and scored the winning goal too! He's mobile, he's strong and would be the ideal replacement for Deano.

    Getting them young

    Everton's Stephen Duke-McKenna was one of several trialists on show as Burnley Under-23s suffered a 2-1 defeat at home to Hull City on Thursday, as confirmed by the Clarets' official website.

    The winger played 81 minutes for Burnley's second string - alongside Josh Benson of Arsenal and Jake Barrett of Manchester United - before being replaced by Moise Kroma, who appears to be on trial from Leeds United.

    And Burnley's official website described Duke-McKenna as a 'constant threat', despite the negative result for his side.

    Whether or not the 17-year-old - who signed scholarship forms with Everton in 2016 - makes the permanent switch to Turf Moor remains to be seen, however.

    When you look at the meteoric rise of Tarkowski and Pope you can see how developing talented young players can be done.

    Amongst his many other skills SD seems to recognise potential talent when he sees it!

    Yes he has the touch and young players will be killing to get on our books as a result.

    More on the under 23s

    Burnley are taking a look at Leeds United striker Moise Kroma.

    Kroma appeared as a late substitute in Burnley Under-23s' 2-1 defeat to Leeds' Yorkshire rivals Hull City on Thursday, as confirmed by the Clarets' official website.

    The Ivorian's two-year scholarship deal - which he signed in 2016, alongside Leeds Under-23s regulars Callum Nicel, Liam Kitching and Jamie Shackleton - is coming to an end this summer.

    Clearly still nothing on the horizon from our youth system then, the Gawthorpe Black Hole still swallowing them up.

    The encouraging thing is that talented young players want to come to Turf Moor. I refuse to entertain negativity about our ability to progress the development of young players.

    We have two currently on their way to join the full England squad.

    Looks like we may be doing business with our feeder club again?

    Brentford's 20 year old centre half Chris Mepham who has just been called up by Ryan Giggs for the full Welsh squad will be heading north in June.

    £6 million going to the Bees and worth every penny according to TEC.

    Charlton and Oldham/Brentford have really done the work though.. Let's be honest. We just gave them a platform they would never have had. Dyche has done ZERO for developing youth. If they don't get a chance.. They can never be good enough. There's a long list of... "could have beens" Gilchrist, howieson etc.
