Asked if he was still happy at Burnley, Dyche said: ‘I’ve always maintained the same thought: Eventually things in football change… I’m always flattered by any links because I respect the whole of football.

‘I played through my career up and down the levels of football, smaller clubs, bigger clubs, etc etc, so my respect has always been there.

‘My role here is still what it is, I’m working hard, I think that’s been shown this season with myself, my staff and my players and I never lose sight of that. 

He refused to close the door entirely on an exit by insisting that there are no guarantees

‘Things can change in the future, who knows? You can’t guarantee things in football.

‘It’s not easy to plan a future in football – doors open and doors closed.

‘At the moment I’m still the Burnley manager. I must have said that down these eight-and-a-half years a number of times.’
