Cape Town - Burnley manager Sean Dyche has revealed that he will have very little time to relax during the off-season as he aims to strengthen his squad.

The Clarets defied the odds in 2016/17 by clinching 16th position in the Premier League to stave off relegation, but Dyche knows he will need to bolster his options to do the same next term.

In order to stay up to date on all the latest transfer dealings and opportunities, the 45-year-old will not have much of a holiday.

"It's a break of sorts, every manager will tell you the phone is always on, you maybe park it during the day and check it in the morning and at night, when you're on holiday, but when you're here, it's on all the time," he said.

"It's just the way it is. When you're not market leaders, you have to try and keep every line of communication open, take every bit of information seriously, even stuff that gets thrown at you from left field, you still have to check it out.

"That's the next challenge, not just adapting this side to go into next season, but adding to it where we can."
