Burnley chairman Mike Garlick has revealed the club are planning to exploit the European market in January, when telling the Lancashire Telegraph about his plans for the mid-season window.
The Clarets have enjoyed reasonable success in their return to the top-flight, standing in the top-half and winning four of their eleven games so far.
Deals aren’t always easy to complete halfway through the season but Burnley are prepared to bide their time in the search for the right deals, with Garlick aiming for quality and not quantity.
“The main aim is to be stronger on February 1 than December 31. We are targeting a couple of quality additions, but it’s got to be quality and not quantity.”
“We do want to look more and more to the European market because the UK is such a limited market, there’s only so many players at the level we’re at.”
Having splashed out to land Steven Defour from Anderlecht, Burnley have experience of plucking talent from the continent but there’s always a wealth of competition from their domestic rivals.
Burnley face a crucial run of fixtures after the international break, which could dramatically affect the course of their season. The Clarets travel to West Brom next week, before clashing with Manchester City, Stoke and Bournemouth.
