Clarets gaffer, Eddie Howe is hoping to add players to his squad 'sooner rather than later' according to the latest media reports
'We need to strengthen the squad and that's what we're looking to do next week,' he said after yesterday's pre-season 4-2 win against Altrincham at Moss Lane.
'We know the areas we want to strengthen and we certainly hope to do that sooner rather than later because we need to get people embedded into how we want to play.
'I don't think we need to bring in a load. I just want quality in certain areas to make us a better team.'
A sizeable number of Clarets fans have been frustrated by the lack of signings this summer and we have still to see a new face arrive at Turf Moor with the new season just 4 weeks away and our pre-season friendly games already underway.
The disappointment of not even having enough money to sign Jack Cork has upset many Clarets fans who are beginning to wonder whether the club has enough ambition and enough bottle to attain Premier League status again. They are also asking two simple questions. Where has all the Premier League money from 2009-10 gone and how come Southampton, a club in administration not so long ago and plying their trade in League 1 have more dosh than Burnley to sign a player that wanted to play for the Clarets?
Yes, we need some signings and yes it has to be this week please! Those signings also have to be of the right quality. Up and coming players from League 1 and League 2 will not cut the mustard with many Clarets fans after losing out to Southampton in our attempts to sign England Under 21 Internaional and huge prospect Jack Cork.
