Burnley transfer rumours: Fulham lining up move for Clarets attacker, Tottenham & Toffees in battle for €23m ace
Here are the best of today’s Premier League transfer rumours.
Burnley interim boss Mike Jackson faced the media yesterday for the first time since Sean Dyche’s sacking.
The Under 23s coach, as well as Academy Director Paul Jenkins, U23s goalkeeping coach Connor King and club captain Ben Mee, have been placed in charge ahead of the Clarets’ match against West Ham today.
Jackson has admitted that it was a shock when he discovered Dyche had been relieved of his duties, almost ten years after he arrived at Turf Moor.
Jackson said: “I came in in the morning, preparing for the Under 23s’ game, and the chairman came into the office and I was told about it then.“I didn’t know anything about it, it was one of those ‘this is what’s happening, I’d like you and Paul Jenkins to take over the team for now, prepare the game for Sunday’.
“So it all came as a bit of a shock to be honest, but it doesn’t surprise me in football sometimes.
“We’re just here to prepare the lads the best we can to make sure they’re ready for the challenge on Sunday.”
Burnley travel to the London Stadium this afternoon, with the Premier League clash kicking off at 2:15pm.
