Hendrick in line for start

Burnley boss Sean Dyche looks set to give summer signing Jeff Hendrick his full debut in Saturday's trip to Leicester.

Hendrick arrived shortly before the close of the summer transfer window and so far has featured for just 15 minutes.

The Republic of Ireland international found his game-time restricted against Hull last weekend after returning late from duty with the national side.

However, Dyche is considering whether to partner Hendrick with fellow new arrival Steven Defour in the heart of midfield.

Striker Ashley Barnes is the Clarets' only key absentee and is yet to feature this term as he continues to work his way back from a hamstring issue.
