Sean Dyche tells media reported Tottenham, Newcastle target Danny Ings won't be sold

Burnley manager Sean Dyche says the Clarets are under no pressure to sell striker Danny Ings.

Speaking ahead of his side's FA Cup replay against Tottenham on Wednesday night, Sean Dyche told the press that Clarets striker Danny Ings won't be leaving Turf Moor, as reported by the BBC.

"We are quite secure. We are in a good position financially and looking to recruit... not let players go out of the building," Dyche said.

"It is an ongoing situation with Danny but he will be a Burnley player - I'm sure of that because he's come out and said it. The board have said it, the fans have said it, the bloke down the road said it to me this morning, the fella in the shop has said it and I've said it. So I'm pretty sure that will be the case," he added.

Ings, 22, took some time to adjust to Premier League football having starred in the Championship last season, but appears to have hit his stride in the top flight.

The former Bournemouth hitman has hit three goals and three assists in his last ten games, and is producing superb displays in the Burnley attack as Dyche looks to lead the Clarets to an unlikely survival in the Premier League.

Yet his recent exploits have attracted reported interest from Premier League rivals such as Newcastle and Tottenham Hotspur, with both teams allegedly eyeing up cut-price bids for the triker.

Ings is out of contract at the end of this season, and would be available to move on for free unless he signs a new deal with the club, though that would go to tribunal due to his age - meaning Burnley are still vulnerable to losing Ings this month, with no new contract in sight.
