Burnley boss Eddie Howe targets new striker

Burnley boss Eddie Howe says he wants to sign at least one more striker.

The Clarets have three senior forwards at the club, Jay Rodriguez, Charlie Austin and Martin Paterson following Chris Iwelumo's transfer to Watford.

Howe told BBC Radio Lancashire: "We are looking to replace Chris. I think you need four good strikers or possibly five. We are looking to strengthen.

"Whether it's a direct replacement for Chris we will have to wait and see. You want all options available to you."

He added: "We might need a slightly more physical presence because the strikers we have can all play with a target man.

"It's something we are going to look at and hopefully we will make the right decision."
