What did Dyche say?
[coach 455461] said, “We have open lines of communication with him and his agent, as we do with all the players, and as far as I’m concerned he’s a Burnley player.”
“Contractual situations are private and personal, or they should be, they’re often not, but he’s been fantastic.
“He (Tarkowski) knows my thoughts on his future here, he knows I want him here.
“He knows his contract is where it is, everyone knows that, but he’ll be here as far as I’m concerned, it’s simple.
“If someone wants to write a cheque for an immeasurable amount then that might be different, but at the moment he’s a Burnley player and he’s done very well again for us this season. He’s a quality player.”
Which clubs are interested in Tarkowski?
[team 27] have rejected several bids from a few Premier League clubs, including [team 1] and [team 42]. The offers that came in for him were appealing as one of the clubs offered £31m for the defender.
The 28-year-old who joined Burnley from [team 236] five years ago has been consistently brilliant for the clarets. His partnership with club captain [player 1460] is one of the strongest in the [league 8]. The duo has played a key role in establishing Burnley as a proper top-flight club.
The defender revealed a year ago that he rejected a contract extension as the offered wages were not as he wanted. He admitted that the money offered to him didn’t reflect his importance.
Now, as he enters in his last 12 months of the current contract, it is expected that he will stay there for one last campaign. The club is ready to let him leave for free next summer instead of cashing in for him now. This is due to his exceptional performances in the survival fight, which Burnley will require again next season.
Burnley’s new owner has publicly said that Dyche will be supported financially in the summer window. As per reports, this could be a massive summer for Burnley in their transfer ambitions.
[team 6] are reportedly going to enter the market for a proven Premier League defender. Tarkowski could be one of them. Only if Tottenham’s bid is completely satisfying for Burnley, they will execute a move. Otherwise, both Burnley and Tarkowski know that this will be his last season with them if he stays.
