Burnley boss cautious on signings

26 August 2010 12:27
Burnley manager Brian Laws says he will only bring in new players before the transfer window closes if any of his current squad are injured in training.The Clarets have so far recruited five players during the summer. [LNB]"It's always on a day-to-day basis whether we need to make changes or not," Laws told BBC Radio Lancashire. [LNB]"But I would never say we're not going to do anything because if anything happens in training over the next few days I will look at things then." [LNB]Chris Iwelumo, Ross Wallace, Dean Marney and Lee Grant all joined the Clarets on permanent deals during the summer. [LNB]Chelsea midfielder Jack Cork also returned to Turf Moor on a season-long loan after impressing during a spell with the club last season. [LNB][LNB] I really wish I could stop my phone from ringing because it is generally agents telling you what great players they've got available Burnley manager Brian Laws And with the emergency-loan window opening a week after the main transfer window closes, Laws says there is less urgency to bring in new signings before 1800 BST on Tuesday. [LNB]"The transfer area that we were going to work in certainly doesn't close for us," said the former Scunthorpe and Sheffield Wednesday boss. "We are looking at it on a regular basis to see what our needs are. [LNB]"The end of the window is more of a countdown scenario for certain satellite TV companies. They try to make it as difficult as possible for managers but more exciting for supporters because they want to see clubs spending money. [LNB]"But it's part and parcel of the game now and we get used to it. The only thing it does increase is agents and I really wish I could stop my phone from ringing because it is generally agents telling you what great players they've got available, but I just take it all with a pinch of salt." [LNB]Burnley's trip to Swansea's Liberty Stadium will be live from 1500 BST on BBC Radio Lancashire on Saturday.
