Burnley will be hoping to perform considerably better next season after a disappointing campaign on the whole this time round.
The Clarets did though manage to preserve their Premier League status for another season, and manager Sean Dyche will no doubt look to his board for some support this summer as he seeks to bring in new players who can improve his squad.
Dyche looks like he is already making plans to improve the first XI too, with reports this week linking the Lancashire club with a £15m move for West Brom defender Craig Dawson.
The 29-year-old has long been a thorn in the side of many opposition teams, with his threat from set-pieces something he has built a bit of a reputation around. Indeed, Dawson knocked in three goals again last season from centre half as the Baggies missed out on promotion from the Championship.
Interestingly too, Dawson also managed over three clearances per game for Albion, an impressive stat which shows just how important he is in the heart of defence.
Dawson is your typical English central defender too, and has been no nonsense throughout his career. However, he is comfortable on the ball when in possession, and he would be the perfect fit for a team like Burnley you would have to assume.
Dyche has long been a believer in adding value for money to his squad, and in Dawson, he would be getting someone who knows the Premier League, is reliable and can fit into the system Burnley operate with relative ease.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
