The transfer window is nearly upon us and football fans up and down the country will be keen to see their side complete deals and strengthen squads.

Burnley supporters are no different with plenty believing the first team needs strengthening.

The Clarets are keen to strengthen in January and right back, central midfield and out wide are the three main areas of the squad that Sean Dyche will be hoping to add in.

We round up the latest transfer news with all the news below.

Gallagher link

Burnley have been linked with a January move for Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher, who is currently on loan at Championship club Charlton Athletic.

The Clarets are keen to strengthen in the middle of the park and currently have Danny Drinkwater on loan from Stamford Bridge.

His deal expires on January 6 and, should Burnley opt not to look at extending the 29-year-old's stay, then Sean Dyche will look for reinforcements,

And it could come in the form of another Blues player in Gallagher.

Here's all you need to know about the 19-year-old.

Gibson future

Sean Dyche admits that some Burnley fringe players could leave the club during the January transfer window in search of regular football but stresses that any exits will be on the club's terms.

The Clarets have used only 18 players in the Premier League this term with the likes of Ben Gibson, Joe Hart and Matej Vydra among the senior stars yet to start a top flight fixture.

Indeed Hart and Gibson have not feature at all in the league and the latter will not travel to Bournemouth on Saturday due to injury.

Dyche admits that Gibson, a £15million record signing will be frustrated with his lack of football since joining from Middlesbrough 18 months ago.

The Turf boss said the Clarets are not looking to offload any players next month but did say that exits could happen if they were right for player and club, as was the case with Sam Vokes' move to Stoke a year ago.
