Reported Rangers managerial target Mark Warburton is on the radar of Burnley, according to Sky Sports.
It has now been reported that should the 43-year-old leave for the Stadium of Light, then Burnley will approach Warburton.
The former Boreham Wood star worked wonders at Brentford in the recently concluded 2014-15 season, guiding them to a top-six finish in the Championship.
Sky Sports report that the presence of Frank McParland at Burnley could “tempt Warburton to take the job if it becomes available”.
McParland was the sporting director at Brentford and has just moved to Burnley to take on the same role.
Warburton has also been linked with the managerial job at Scottish giants Rangers, with Sky Sports reporting that the 52-year-old is “is on a short list of potential candidates drawn up by the Light Blues' board”.
Last month, the Englishman was linked with the managerial role at West Yorkshire outfit Leeds United.
The Daily Mail claimed that Leeds owner Massimo Cellino was a fan of Warburton, but the Championship club eventually appointed Uwe Rosler as their boss.
