Might Foxes, Hammers, Toffees be Dyche next club?
FootyOn look at Sean Dyche next club options for the Burnley boss with some Premier League clubs looking out for a new manager.
Despite a widely anticipated defeat by league leaders Manchester City, Dyche remains an in-demand coach.
As autumns wears on, the positions of other bosses at bigger clubs have become more and more precarious.
At the time of writing, two Premier League teams are looking for a new manager.
Could either of those tempt Dyche away from Turf Moor?
He is currently English league football’s seventh longest serving boss – just behind Bournemouth counterpart Eddie Howe.
As he closes on five years with Burnley, we assess potential Dyche next club options…
Leicester looking for Shakespeare successor
Former Premier League champions Leicester City sacked Craig Shakespeare recently after a poor run of results.
The Foxes are one of modern sport’s biggest fairytale stories, but life after their against all odds triumph has been a struggle.
Although this was somewhat inevitable, Dyche could be forgiven if he was a little suspicious of the East Midlands outfit’s Asian owners.
They have shown themselves to be ruthless in the King Power Stadium boardroom, first removing Premier League winning coach Claudio Ranieri and now axing his former assistant.
BetVictor are 5/1 (from 4/1) about Leicester among Dyche next club options.
Everton a more appealing prospect
Ronald Koeman has left the Toffees in the Premier League relegation zone, while Burnley occupy a top eight place.
The crazy world of football means this is reality, rather than the two teams being the other way around.
If Everton are massively underachieving after spending around £140,000,000 this summer, then the Clarets are punching well above their weight under Dyche.
He lost key players from his Turf Moor team this summer, including star centre back Michael Keane to the Toffees.
A reunion with Dyche may be on the cards now, as there have been a flurry of bets on him moving to Merseyside.
Paddy Power now make the manager 6/4 favourite to succeed Koeman (from 6/1), so this look the most likely Dyche next club option.
West Ham giving Bilic time
And finally, West Ham United have been very poor under Slaven Bilic this season.
Hammers boardroom bigwigs Karen Brady, David Gold and David Sullivan are usually very patient with their managers, though.
Like Leicester and Everton, there are far greater resources at this London club than the Clarets have.
Dyche moving to the capital doesn’t look likely, though.
BetVictor make him a 16/1 shot to replace Bilic and this post isn’t vacant just yet.
