Premier League boss confirms interest in manager as Everton reportedly circle


The Dutchman was sacked last week after a awful start to the season, and the Toffees remain in the Premier league relegation zone.

Everton are a massive club, and Dyche would be a success at Goodison Park, but he has a safe and secure job at Burnley.

"He added: "We just keep getting on with it, that's my focus and my team's focus". "When you are us, you can't go out every week and play fantastic, you have to fight for it".

Garlick also insisted the club were not now looking for a replacement for Dyche, despite rumours over his future.

But the Everton hierarchy look set to broaden their search for a new manager with Dyche firmly in their sights. "There's one person on our list and that's Sean Dyche".

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.

Everton have lost both of their games under current caretaker manager David Unsworth so far, losing 2-1 to Chelsea in the Carabao Cup fourth round and being beaten 2-0 by Leicester in the Premier League on Sunday, leaving them 18th in the table.

Everton's (reported) interested in Dyche should not come as a surprise to anyone, but would the 46-year-old accept the managerial role at the Toffees if the Merseyside outfit do make an offer?

"Who knows? I'd have to consider that, if that phone call happens", Allardyce told beIN SPORTS.

Whatever the truth is, Dyche is an underwhelming choice as Everton boss.

"Is fifth like the new 25th or something?" he said jokingly after the game.
