26 January 2017 01:55

Burnley midfielder Dean Marney will not play again this season having torn his anterior cruciate ligament in his knee, boss Sean Dyche has confirmed.

The 32-year-old, who has made 21 appearances for the Clarets this term, sustained the injury during the game against Arsenal last Sunday and will see a specialist on Thursday, with Dyche revealing at his press conference that it will be a lengthy absence.

Marney had previously suffered the same injury, to the same knee, during Burnley's last Premier League campaign in February 2015 when he was kept out for nine months.
