Burnley are in crisis, with manager Sean Dyche and chairman Mike Garlick's relationship having ­severely deteriorated and the club's drastic need for new signings thrown into turmoil by the prospect of a takeover.

To compound matters, three of those - captain Ben Mee, midfielder Cork and forward Ashley Barnes - are expected to miss the Leicester game through injury and Burnley face a battle to keep centre-half James Tarkowski, who is wanted by West Ham United and Leicester.

Six senior players - Jack Cork, Ashley Westwood, Robbie Brady, Matt Lowton, Kevin Long and Phil Bardsley - are out of contract next summer and the club face a battle to keep some of them.

Burnley have yet to make a ­significant signing ahead of their opening Premier League match at Leicester on Sunday, despite losing Jeff Hendrick, Aaron Lennon and Joe Hart at the end of last season.

Meanwhile, tTwo American consortiums are battling to win control of the club, but uncertainty over their future has complicated recruitment plans.

The relationship between Dyche and Garlick, once one of the closest manager-chairman dynamics in the top flight, has soured and they now talk far less frequently.

Two rival bidders are competing to take ownership of the club, but the timing of a potential buy-out is wreaking havoc with attempts to strengthen a threadbare squad ­before the close of the transfer ­window in less than three weeks.
