Next Burnley manager: Ex-Nottingham Forest man installed as early favourite while former Chelsea, Hull City and West Ham men also in the running

Bookmakers have begun to open their markets for who the next Burnley manager will be ahead of Vincent Kompany’s anticipated move to Bayern Munich.

The Belgian is expected to be unveiled as Thomas Tuchel’s replacement this week after agreeing to take over at the Allianz Arena.

It’s been widely reported that Kompany is set to agree a contract until 2027 after the two parties agreed a compensation package of €12m (£10.2m).

That would make Kompany the fourth most expensive boss in football history.

For the Clarets, however, they must now begin their search for his successor as they look to identify the man who will be tasked with guiding the club back to the Premier League at the first attempt.
