Recently, Burnley boss Kompany spoke about the type of players he wants to sign for the club’s return to the top flight.
He said: “We want players who can run, a lot. So the performance testing is important for us.
“We know we like players who are fit so the medical screening is important.”
He added: “Youth can cost you points but also creates value so you need to find the blend of talent and experience. That is what we did this year and it doesn't change because we're in a higher division.
“I'm not someone desperate for change but it's normal when a new manager and ownership group comes in. Recruitment starts with the profile of players you are looking for.”
