Irons manager target looks off limits until summer

sean-dyche-burnleyWest Ham are unlikely to be able to tempt Burnley boss Sean Dyche into the London Stadium before next summer the earliest.

Dyche is at the top of a long list of candidates to take over from Slaven Bilic at the end of his contract although the possibility of a caretaker boss remains should things continue to slide downhill in the Premier League for the Irons.

Dyche has long been on the Hammers list but the Clarets boss – currently on £3 million a year at Turf Moor – is also understood to have a “hefty” stay up bonus written into his deal.

And he is not expected to walk away from what will be a small fortune should the north western outfit remain in the Premier League.

Everton also fancy the Burnley boss but with his family still believed to be living in the Northampton area, a move to West Ham may be a very attractive proposition to Dyche from all points of view.

  1. I am a little puzzled that Sean Dyche would be considered as the no.1 replacement if Slav leaves?
    Makes you wonder where Mancini, Pelegrinii, Ancelotti,, Tuchel, and even Wagner would rate.

  2. Is £3m a typo? You’ve been reporting that he’s only on £300,000 per year.

    • I’m also surprised. I thought I read here last week that he was a good option as he’s ‘only’ on $420k a year at Burnley.

      I have massive respect for Dyche and Burnley for sticking with each other during their relegation. Shows a club that has everything in perspective.

  3. How is he an upgrade ?
    Give Bilic a chance till the end of the season
    No more manager talk and get behind our club
    Now for woy

  4. Not a long term appt imo

  5. Spot on Bubs. Put up or shut up in terms of the manager and not helpful on game day.
    We will get the same from the owners…talk benitez get whoever is cheap.

  6. Dyche is the Lowest paid manager in the Premiership!

  7. Which is why he’s top of our list
