Sean Dyche has revealed there has been no contact with Everton regarding their managerial vacancy as he prepares to celebrate his five-year anniversary at Burnley.
The Clarets boss, who was also linked to the Leicester job before it was given to Claude Puel, is considered one of the frontrunners with bookmakers for the post at Goodison Park, which is available after the Toffees parted ways with Ronald Koeman this week.
It will be five years to the day on Monday since Dyche, the third longest-serving manager in the Premier League, was appointed and he has won promotion to the top flight, twice, and kept the club in the top flight last term.
Whether that persuades Everton’s hierarchy to try and tempt him to Merseyside remains to be seen, though Dyche, while flattered, is yet to hear anything.
“There has been no contact from any clubs,” he said.
“I’ve said it a few times with the various clubs that have been mentioned — you’re always flattered because it recognises the work that myself, my players and staff do.
“You’re flattered by the fact some of your work is recognised. It’s other people’s stories, it’s not mine. It’s right that I get asked about it.
“Yet again, Everton are another good club, I’m respectful of all clubs in all situations. But I’m equally respectful of my situation now. I just get on with it.”
