The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Paddy von Behr

SEAN Dy­che is adamant An­dre Gray will be at Turf Moor next month and his con­fi­dence is un­der­stand­able – af­ter all, the striker is not al­lowed to play for any­one else this sea­son.

Gray, 24, has ex­celled this term, scor­ing 16 goals for Brent­ford and Burn­ley, with the lat­ter sign­ing him in late Au­gust for £9m.

It has led to spec­u­la­tion link­ing him to Premier League clubs such as Ever­ton, As­ton Villa, New­cas­tle United and Swansea City.

But Dy­che was keen to fill in those un­aware that his star man – like all play­ers – is not el­i­gi­ble to be reg­is­tered full­time to more than two clubs in a sea­son.

“He’s not al­lowed to play for an­other team,” Dy­che said.“They know he’s not al­lowed to play for any­one else this sea­son. I do think it’s in­ter­est­ing, the num­ber of peo­ple that keep ask­ing me about An­dre – he’s not al­lowed to move.

“Well, he could move, but he can’t play for any­one else. And let’s face it, if you’re go­ing to pay a lot of money you’d prob­a­bly want to play him.”

CLARET: An­dre Gray
