[Burnley Manager Sean Dyche on Johann Berg Gudmundsson new contract] He’s had a very strong season. We saw the progress he was making and this season he’s stepped up again. We’re certainly strong financially. There’s no sense of anyone having to go anywhere. We are in a position where it would need really, really big offers for us to lose any players. We don’t have to trade out. That’s the good side of making sure the business runs properly

[Sean Dyche on Steven Defour who was injured] Steven came off at Leicester, with a mild twist to his knee, and he’s made really good progress and we’re expecting him to be fine

[Sean Dyche on Ben Gibson who was injured] Ben is over the worst of his hernia, he’ll join in with the development squad this week in a game, hopefully on Saturday. He’s has a really good week’s training, he’s a super fit pro anyway and he’s looked after himself f or sure, so we’re looking forward to having him back, and I’m sure he’s looking forward to being back after an interrupted start to his Burnley career

[Sean Dyche on James Tarkowski who was injured] He’s going nicely on the grass, he’s not quite with us yet, and Monday will probably come too early for him. But he’s making good progress, and slightly behind that, Stephen Ward is going well, and Nick Pope is back on the grass with our goalkeeping coach, making good progress, so we’re beginning to show strong signs of numbers coming back our way

[Sean Dyche breezes through a whole range of subjects, including tattoos] It wouldn’t be ‘get your hair cut’ but ‘get rid of your tattoos, young man’. Everyone has a tattoo, thinking they’re different, but it means they’re all the same. ‘Oh, but my sleeve is different!’ – I reckon about five of our players don’t have one. Listen, I’m not anti-tattoo, I just don’t understand it. It is not the tattoos. It’s that you can start believing in these things more than the job. The car, the lifestyle, it becomes bigger than the job, it softens you and swerves you off the job, takes the edge away
