Sean Dyche admits the success Maxwel Cornet has enjoyed since signing for Burnley could see the Clarets dip their toes further into the European transfer market.

Cornet has impressed since joining from Lyon in the summer and netted twice in the weekend draw with Southampton.

That took his tally to three goals in two Premier League starts and he has made a big impact on and off the pitch at Turf Moor.

Clarets chairman Alan Pace worked tirelessly to get the deal over the line this summer and Dyche admits the board's more open minded transfer approach, and the evidence Cornet is providing on the pitch could lead to more foreign signings jetting in to Burnley.

"Maybe, as long as we look after ourselves this season it is that next level of thinking and that is what I have been asking for over the last few seasons," said the Burnley boss.

"The board dynamic has changed and the view has changed. The new board will put some finance at risk for the right players as long as the due diligence has been done.

"It wasn’t as free-flowing with the outgoing board and it wasn’t as free-flowing with what you would call risk players, players who culturally have to change, settle into an area and the back up systems and support needed for those players.

"This ownership and view is different. Neither is particularly right or wrong because we have done some really good work with more British players here.

"I would never overlook that or the board and the way they were trying to operate, it was safer but it was trying to make the club secure and look after it.

"This is slightly more open minded approach and is something I have always been saying that we had to do anyway.

"This board and ownership have backed it and said ‘we get it’ and so as long as the diligence is there and we think we are going in the right direction then we would like to support it."

Cornet has yet to complete 90 minutes for Burnley since arriving and was replaced in the second half at Southampton with cramp.

He has already suffered a hamstring strain since arriving at the club and he could sit out the cup tie with Tottenham this week.

The Ivory Coast international's on pitch ability has captured the imagination of supporters but hasn't surprised his manager.

"Not overly," added Dyche. "He was up and running at Lyon and playing season in and season out. He came in generally in a good shape.

"It is still early, we like what he is doing and how he is rubbing off on the team.

"He is still adapting to the Premier League. There are some very good signs there.

"They (the fans) can get as carried away as they wish!

"Me and my staff have to realise and analyse to the truth of what is going on and how he is adapting and how he can learn and adapt to what it is to be in the Premier League, that is our job

"But we want the fans to enjoy these players, all of our players for different reasons

"I am sure they have enjoyed players who haven't got perhaps the je ne sais quoi

"I am sure they are enjoying James Tarkowski's performance, I certainly am

"Different kind of players and things make up a team and Maxwel has given us something different at the moment."
