Dyche: Goal machine Ings going nowhere

Burnley manager Sean Dyche is convinced he will keep Danny Ings at Turf Moor during this transfer window.

There has been speculation ever since I have been here over our players, whether it's Ings, Sam Vokes or Charlie Austin.

There is naturally going to be interest when players are doing well. It's good that there are people interested but I don't envisage him leaving any time soon.

Certainly not in January, but who knows what happens in the future - everybody has their price, even Cristiano Ronaldo.

He is a Burnley player, he is playing well, enjoying his football and scoring goals.
