Report: Everton and Aston Villa admirers of Sean Dyche

Everton and Aston Villa are amongst the Premier League clubs to have taken note of the job Sean Dyche has done at Burnley, according to a report from the Sunday Mirror (16/5; page 70).

It is often suggested that he is overlooked when other top flight jobs come up. But it does seem that he has plenty of admirers amongst some of their rivals.

According to the Sunday Mirror (16/5; page 70), Burnley are in talks with the 49-year-old over a new contract. His current deal, worth £70,000-a-week, expires next summer.

Celtic fans left short-changed by Sky Sports once again

But interestingly, the report also claims that Everton and Villa have taken note of his work.

It must be noted that there is no indication that either is expecting to be on the look-out for a new manager anytime soon.

Everton appointing Carlo Ancelotti was a huge coup for the Toffees. And Dean Smith deserves a lot of credit for leading Villa to a much better position this season.

But perhaps it is a sign that either club could look at Dyche should Ancelotti or Smith leave their post in the future.
