Burnley manager Dyche signs new deal


London (AFP) – Burnley manager Sean Dyche has signed a new contract that will keep him at Turf Moor for a further four-and-a-half years, the Premier League club announced on Tuesday.

The 46-year-old, in charge of the northwest side since October 2012, is widely regarded as one of the best of the current crop of young English managers along with Bournemouth’s Eddie Howe.

Earlier this season, Dyche was linked with the vacancy at Everton after the Toffees sacked Ronald Koeman before veteran former England manager Sam Allardyce took charge at Goodison Park.

Tuesday also saw Clarets assistant manager Ian Woan and first-team coach Tony Loughlan sign new deals that will keep them with Burnley until June 2022.

“I am quite young in management terms. I am still learning and still improving, I believe, so for my personal reasons, as well, I think it’s the right place to be,” Dyche, who has twice led the club to promotion to the Premier League, told Burnley’s website.

“It’s a very good environment and I enjoy it and I enjoy the connection I’ve had with this area.

“There’s lots of work to be done, but I’m definitely ‘in’ for the work to be done.”

Burnley are currently an impressive eighth in the Premier League, six points and a place above Everton.
