According to a report in the Independent, Sean Dyche is interested in taking the vacant managerial role at Crystal Palace.
Dyche is no stranger to being linked with vacant posts, but never before has he been believed to hold a serious interest in taking another job.
Palace are believed to have quite a long managerial shortlist at the moment, but Dyche is on that list, although at this present moment, it remains to be seen if he is the number one candidate.
The Independent’s report also claims that Dyche has a £1 million release clause, which for a manager of Dyche’s ilk, is a steal.
Dyche took over at Turf Moor in 2012, replacing Eddie Howe, who returned to AFC Bournemouth, and since his appointment, the Clarets have never looked back.
In just his first full season in charge, Dyche lead Burnley to promotion, despite being fourth favourites to be relegated, which has to go down as one of the clubs most remarkable achievements to date.
The former Watford boss couldn’t keep the Clarets in the Premier League, but at the first time of asking, he took Burnley straight back to the ‘big time’.
This time around, Burnley would pull off the unthinkable and secure back to back top flight seasons for the first time in over 30 years.
To lose Dyche would be a huge blow to Burnley, but no man is bigger than the club, and I have full faith in the board to bring in a suitable replacement should Dyche depart.
Who could replace Dyche though? A rough list of candidates for me, would be: Alan Pardew, Jaap Stam, Slavisa Jokanovic or Claudio Ranieri.
Maybe even Dean Smith from Brentford as a left field choice.
Who would you like as the new boss if Dyche was to leave? Drop a comment below!!!
