Not only do they have new owners who fans will be hoping are willing to splash some cash in the market, but rumours continue to persist about Sean Dyche’s future.

The Turf Moor manager has been touted as a leading target for Crystal Palace following the departure of Roy Hodgson, and until a new boss does come in at Selhurst Park, the Clarets are bound to be worried about losing their long-serving chief.

Speaking about the matter on Sky Sports News, Paul Merson urged Dyche to exercise caution before making any decision on his future.

The former Arsenal man said: “He’s done an unbelievable job.

"Sean Dyche has got to be careful if he moves on.

"He has a job for life, in my opinion, or as long as he wants it. Or, he goes somewhere else and it could be 10 minutes – I mean that. It could be a season, it could be half a season because we’ve seen it too many times.

"For me, he does unbelievable to keep that team up every year, every player wants to play for him, and the biggest compliment you can give any manager is that week in, week out, season after season, they all run through brick walls for him.

"That is the biggest compliment you can give. If you can do that, you’re a good manager.”
