Sean Deich believes that any potential signing of the Burnley loan should be a “guarantee” as the Clarets chief discussed the potential arrival before the transfer window closed.
Burnley are increasingly confident that a deal with Lyon for Maxwel Cornet can be struck with an agreed payment, with the option to continue arriving at Turf Moor until the Tuesday deadline at 23:00.
Deich has repeatedly spoken about the difficulties the Clarets face in the transfer market given their financial resources compared to other Premier League clubs, and while credit is one way to tackle this problem, the Turf boss does not see in this perfect solution.

Daich rarely made use of the credit market during his time at Turf Moor, and the series of temporary signings he made struggled to make an impact.
And the Clarets chef is again very focused on permanent contracts as a priority.
“I think that loans are for later, in the sense that when you have such an associated group as ours, I think that the loan should be almost a guarantee for me,” he said, referring to Lancs Live.
“Either someone who is clearly going to go to the team because of their level, or a younger style player who wants the experience that he can get in the group and play
“This is a different version of a player who comes to the club (on loan).
“When you sign a contract with a club, you are responsible to that club, responsible to the team, manager, staff, fans.
“When you’re on a loan it’s not realistic and I think it takes certain characters to really fly when you’re on a loan, so that’s an important factor.
“I did it myself, and I had a very good experience during my loan period as a player, but I know a lot of players who haven’t, so I need to find the right type, the right balance, the right player who wants to come to lease and which impact on the group
“Ideally, he always signs first, and then we see what happens in the credit market, if available.”
