Crystal Palace & Newcastle United Chasing Sean Dyche this Summer
Chris Wilder is a contender to replace Sean Dyche at Burnley Football Club, with the Clarets concerned about losing their manager to Premier League rival this summer. As former Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder is expected to become the hottest one of the properties of the close season, with a host of clubs in the english Premier League and Championships interested in signing him as their new manager.
The Clarets board are hoping Sean Dyche will stay at the club, but his excellent work in establishing them as a Premier League club has attracted plenty of interest, including London club Crystal Palace. It remains uncertain as to whether Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson will stay beyond his contract, which runs until the end of the season along with seventeen of the players contracts.
Both Sean Dyche and Chris Wilder have admirers at Selhurst Park as do Eddie Howe and Frank Lampard. However, sources claim that Crystal Palace will not make a final decision on Hodgson until the closing weeks of the campaign. The process of finding a replacement has begun in south London, though paying compensation of £3.5million to Burnley may prove a stumbling block.
Sean Dyche has also been linked to Newcastle United, where manager Steve Bruce is under growing pressure. But even if he stays at Turf Moor, it looks likely Wilder will have plenty of options in the summer. West Bromwich Albion could emerge as potential suitors and Sportsmail understands he has admirers at AFC Bournemouth, who have confirmed they will sack Jonathan Woodgate if he fails to secure promotion back to the top flight.
