Sean Dyche insists Burnley will not be forced into selling defender Michael Keane against their will this summer.

The England international, who has one year remaining on his contract, wishes to leave the club at the end of the season and has been linked with a return to Manchester United.

Dyche admitted Keane's desire to move on has caught him by surprise but he warned interested clubs that Burnley will only let the centre-half leave if it is on their terms.

"I actually got told via a TV screen that he will be leaving. It was news to me as manager," Dyche admitted.

"The reality is nothing has changed. He is focused on the job at hand. He knows the job at hand. He has certainly delivered performances for himself and for the club.

"Any other information that will be given will be in the summer and it will be only if it is an appropriate situation for all parties.

"He is under contract - it is as simple as that - and he knows that.

"We have got an open dialogue with him and his agent and they both know how the club works. They are well in the picture of any situation - if there is any which there is not at the moment."

When asked if Burnley have received any inquiries from clubs interested in Keane, Dyche replied: "No. It is as simple as that. If there was it would only be something we control.

"We are a different animal to what we were a few years ago. We are in a very strong situation now as a club financially and with how the business side of the club is run.

Michael Keane was nominated by the Professional Footballers’ Association for the Young Player of the Year award. Burnley manager Sean Dyche says the club are in “wait and see” mode over the future of their England international defender Michael Keane , who has been linked with several top clubs.

"We can make those decisions when it appropriate to do so but there is certainly no consideration of any our players leaving at this moment in time.

Dyche said: "He has been linked with more clubs than Keano! But he is a fine player without a shadow of a doubt.

"He's an absolutely fantastic player in my opinion."

When pressed on whether he would make a move, Dyche coyly replied: "You never know. "
