Everton links not shifting Dyche's focus as Burnley move up to seventh

Everton links not shifting Dyche's focus as Burnley move up to seventh

Stephen Ward has praised the "outstanding" work of Sean Dyche ahead of a landmark day for the Burnley manager.

Sky Sports reports that Everton are interested in making Dyche their new manager after dismissing former manager Ronald Koeman last week, following a poor start to the season.

Tuesday's football gossip links two managers with a move to Goodison Park. "Another five years, hopefully". Eddie Howe hasn't been mentioned once for this job; he finished ninth last season with Bournemouth. He was harshly relieved of his duties at Watford but joined Burnley in October 2012. It's miraculous what he's done with Burnley, but with the finances he could easily be in the bottom three next season. Nevertheless, they bounced straight back up at the first attempt and won the Championship title.

During his tenure, Dyche has guided Burnley to the Premier League twice and kept them in the division last season with a record that saw them collect 33 points at home.

The rumours that Dyche is a target for the position at Goodison Park has not escaped those in the Burnley dressing room. The players understand their role under him and they are a well drilled and disciplined side.

Everton moving for Dyche was an assumption made by many, although getting him and Bunrley to agree is quite another matter.

Jamie Carragher urged Dyche to take the job if he was offered as he believes it would be a step up the managerial ladder. The opportunity to manage Everton is one that would be hard for a manager to turn down.

From Burnley's perspective, Gary Neville added on MNF that the Clarets must do all they can to keep the 46-year-old at the club for at least the remainder of the campaign.

Following Unsworth's appointment as caretaker manager, Dyche has moved to clear favourite to become next permanent Everton manager, according to Oddschecker.
