BURNLEY winger Robbie Brady faces another spell on the sidelines as question marks remain over his future at Turf Moor.

The 29-year-old suffered a recurrence of an Achilles problem during the Republic of Ireland’s friendly with Qatar this week and will miss out when the Clarets resume their Premier League campaign against Saints at St Mary’s on Sunday.

Brady has been beset by a spate of injuries over the last few seasons and Burnley boss Sean Dyche thinks he will be out for “a few weeks at least” with his latest issue.

The Irishman is out of contract in the summer, with no new deal currently on the table, and it looks like he is not going be fit until the closing weeks of the campaign.

“Robbie Brady came off and is definitely not going to make it,” said Dyche.

“We are waiting on the results of scans and stuff as to how long that is going to be but it looks like one that will keep him out for a few weeks at least.”
