West Ham admire Burnley manager Sean Dyche amid uncertainty over David Moyes
West Ham United are admirers of Burnley manager Sean Dyche, with David Moyes linked with Everton.
According to Daily Mirror, the Hammers and Crystal Palace are some of the clubs keeping tabs on the 49-year-old, with his current contract at Turf Moor expiring next summer.
West Ham were put off by Dyche’s buy-out clause – around £7million – last summer, and the Mirror claims “Burnley are optimistic about agreeing a new contract with him to ward off interest in their successful manager”.
Could Everton lure Moyes away?
The Hammers boss has been linked with a return to Goodison Park since Carlo Ancelotti walked out on them last week [Telegraph].
The 58-year-old signed an 18-month contract when he returned to the London Stadium to replace Manuel Pellegrini in December 2019, and while he is expected to pen an extension after leading us to Europe at the end of last term, that is yet to happen.
Everton majority shareholder and owner Farhad Moshiri has strongly backed the team in the transfer market in recent years, and that would tempt any manager.
The same cannot be said of David Gold and David Sullivan, and we can only hope they give Moyes enough assurances ahead of the transfer window and convince him to sign.
Losing the boss would be a big blow on West Ham, and it appears the board have Dyche in their sights.
He has led Burnley to a sixth consecutive season in the Premier League and could be a perfect fit for the Hammers job should Moyes leave.
However, we are hoping that does not happen and cannot wait to see the boss sign on the dotted lines.
