Burnley boss Sean Dyche says it is "probable but not definite" that one of his three England-capped goalkeepers will leave the club this summer.
Joe Hart - dropped by Dyche midway through this season, with Tom Heaton coming into the team - has this week been linked with Championship title-winners Norwich.
Dyche, who also has Nick Pope in his squad, was asked on Friday if he anticipated one of the trio departing if the deal was right for the player and the Clarets.
He said: "I think it's probable but not definite."
When that was put to Dyche, he said: "It's already started again. It always does.
"It's ongoing for us - we look at quality players, we try to keep an eye on the market, we try to find the right ones who fit us as a team and the business model of course, and the right age, the right pay scales.
"It's not easy and it narrows down your market quite significantly when you try to tick every box and that is what we attempt to do here."
Dyche, speaking ahead of Sunday's clash with Arsenal, also confirmed a 12-month extension to full-back Phil Bardsley's contract has been triggered to keep him at Burnley next season and said talks are planned with veteran striker Peter Crouch.
