BURNLEY boss Sean Dyche is upbeat on the prospects of Robbie Brady making a full recovery following surgery.

But the Clarets chief says it's too early to set a date for Brady's return to action. Brady has gone under the knife since he suffered damage to his patella tendon in last week's Premier League clash with Leicester City.

“The surgeon, who has done most of our players, was very happy with the work that was done,” Dyche told Burnley's website.

“I have spoken to him briefly and he’s fine. He understands it and he’s been talked through the plan of attack from now, leading to when he’s fit.

"Any timescale at the moment would be too general.

“He will be moving very quickly. We look forward to seeing him, first of all just moving around the training ground and getting on with it, and then obviously when he’s fit.

“Life goes quickly and it will soon come back round for him to join in again.”
