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.

"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.
