Burnley boss Sean Dyche continues to be clipped in the next Aston Villa manager marketby Jack Kitson / 11 October 2016, 12:57
Sean Dyche's odds continue to fall in the betting to become the Next Aston Villa Manager, with Sky Bet cutting the Burnley boss from 8/1 down to just 11/4, although he can still be backed at 6/1 (Betway).
Late last week Dyche was way out at 33/1 in the Midlands market, but as speculation continues to swirl he now finds himself as the second favourite in the betting.
Frontrunner Bruce still remains the hot odds-on favourite to return to the dugout with Villa. The 55-year-old is as short as 1/5 to bag the Villa job, and according to many reports an appointment could even be made this week.
But, the sudden emergence of Dyche will undoubtedly make Burnley supporters nervous, although in truth it's difficult to see the 45-year-old dropping down a division to the Championship...
...although few expected Micky Mellon to suddenly switch League One side Shrewsbury Town for National League outfit Tranmere Rovers last week...
Dyche has been in charge of Burnley since 2012, making him the third longest-serving boss in the Premier League, behind Arsene Wenger and Eddie Howe.
Dyche has twice led Burnley up to the top-flight, most recently last season after his troops hoisted the Championship title.
The 14th-placed Clarets have since made a fairly decent start to life back in the Promised Land, picking up seven points from their opening seven games, which includes a 2-0 victory against Liverpool.
But, will Dyche still be in the dugout for Sunday's televised clash away to Southampton...we think so.
