Premier League boss confirms interest in manager as Everton reportedly circle
By John Reid
Burnley chairman Mike Garlick is well aware of Everton’s interest in his manager Sean Dyche.
Speaking to Radio Five Live, as quoted in the Liverpool Echo, Garlick remarked: “That’s the price of success I guess. The more success we get, the more people are going to look at him.”
“But we look after him well and we hope he’s going to be here for a long time.”
Dyche has performed miracles at Turf Moor since taking over five years ago this week.
He currently has the The Clarets sitting in seventh place in the Premier League, after a 1-0 win over Newcastle on Monday night.

Despite the claims of the chairman, Dyche has been declared the odds-on favourite at the bookmakers for the job.
As yet, no talks have taken place between Burnley and Everton.
Sam Allardyce has also been mentioned in dispatches for the Everton job and would reportedly ‘consider‘ the job.
But it seems that Sean Dyche is the man Everton want.
Everton caretaker manager David Unsworth is set to take charge of the Goodison Park club for Thursday night’s Europa League tie, away to Lyon.
Everton currently sit bottom of their Europa League group with only one point and are currently in the Premier League relegation zone, which makes appointing the new manager a matter of urgency.
