Report: Sean Dyche more interested in Everton job than he's ever admitted

Sean Dyche, Manager of Burnley looks on during the Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and Burnley at Wembley Stadium on August 27, 2017 in London, England.

Everton were originally linked strongly with Burnley boss Sean Dyche.

Sean Dyche manager of Burnley gestures during the Premier League match between Chelsea and Burnley at Stamford Bridge on August 12, 2017 in London, England.

According to a report in the Telegraph, Burnley boss Sean Dyche is still keen on the Everton job.

Dyche has remained tight-lipped at press conferences ever since the Everton job became vacant, with the Burnley boss keen to avoid the spotlight.

However, the Telegraph claim that Dyche is far more interested in Everton than he has let on.

Burnley manager Sean Dyche gives a talk on day one of the 2017 Leaders Sport Performance Summit at The Oval on November 6, 2017 in London, England.

The problem for the 46-year-old boss is that Everton do not appear to have placed him high up on their wishlist.

Dyche was the early front runner to take over from Ronald Koeman, but as the weeks have gone by, the links have died down.

Everton have considered appointing Sam Allardyce and Marco Silva, but have found bringing either of the pair to Merseyside to be problematic.

Sam Allardyce, Manager of Crystal Palace looks on prior to the Premier League match between Crystal Palace and Hull City at Selhurst Park on May 14, 2017 in London, England.

Dyche, meanwhile, has continued to impress at Burnley - with his side currently sitting in seventh place in the Premier League table.

Everton have most recently been linked with Martin O’Neill, but Dyche could still be a possibility, if the Republic of Ireland boss’s potential move falls through.
