Brian Laws now has two extra players in his squad who he will need to get to know better after their return to Turf Moor recently following loan spells away.
19 year old midfielder, Adam Kay (pictured above) has yet to make his first team debut for the Clarets.He was promoted to the senior squad during the 2007-08 season after progressing through the youth ranks at the club and was handed the squad number 25.
In March 2009 he joined Accrington Stanley on loan until the end of the 2008-09 season making just three appearances for the League 2 side.
Owen Coyle decided to give him more experience out of loan at the start of the 2009-10 season so Kay joined Chester City in August 2009 on loan until January 2010 along with Chris Lynch.
Kay made 15 appearances for the Conference National club but is now back at Turf Moor.
18 year old striker, Wes Fletcher is also back at Turf Moor after his loan spell at League 2 club, Grimsby Town.
He bagged 40 goals for the Burnley Youth and Reserve teams last season and then signed his first professional contract for the Clarets in March 2009 and became part of the first team for the 2009-10 season.
Last month Fletcher was sent out on loan to Grimsby Town.
It was through Lancashire-based Grimsby Town number two and former Bury manager Chris Casper that Fletcher came to the Mariners' attention.
Fletcher explained: 'Chris Casper had seen me play in the FA Youth Cup for Burnley against West Brom.
'He spoke to the club and to me and that's how the move came about.
'I was happy to move and I'm looking to get more games and some first-team experience and hopefully a few goals.'
He made his professional debut against Cheltenham Town on the 16th January 2010, less than 24 hours after signing on loan and just three days after Brian Laws had become the new manager at Burnley.
It was a promising start and he scored his first professional goal after coming on as a substitute in the 2-1 defeat to Rotherham United on 23 January 2010.
In total he made six appearences for the Mariners, five of which were off the bench.
It is difficult to see Kay or Fletcher being in contention for a place in the first team this season. We shall have to probably wait until the close season before we know whether either player features in Brian Laws future plans.
