Burnley boss Sean Dyche hopes new record signing Maxwel Cornet will be available for his side’s Premier League trip to Everton on Monday.

Cornet, who sealed a reported £12.9million move from Lyon in the transfer window, has linked up with the Clarets squad following international duty with the Ivory Coast.

The 24-year-old, who can play on both wings or as a full-back, played in the whole of his country’s 2-1 World Cup qualifying win over Cameroon in Abidjan on Monday.

Dyche said: “Maxwell has just come in so we will find out a bit more about him and there are a couple of standard fitness tests we will run on him.

“We will check his fitness out – he has had a bit of a dead leg in the games he has been involved in, but I don’t think it’s serious.”

Dyche is hopeful that centre-back Nathan Collins will be fit to feature for Burnley against the Toffees despite having to withdraw from the Republic of Ireland squad due to an unspecified injury.
