Dyche confirmed as Burnley boss

Former Watford manager Sean Dyche has been confirmed as Eddie Howe's replacement as Burnley manager on Tuesday.

Dyche, 41, has been out of work since leaving Vicarage Road in the summer after he was sacked by the club's new owners, and he has signed a two-and-a-half year deal at Turf moor.

He was dismissed at Watford to make way for the arrival of Gianfranco Zola, though many viewed it as harsh treatment as he took the Hornets, who had been one of the pre-season favourites for relegation, to an 11th place finish in the Championship in his first season in charge.

Dyche, who was Malky Mackay's assistant at the club for two years before succeeding the Scot, was watching on at the Cardiff City Stadium on Saturday as Burnley slumped to a 4-0 defeat.

St Johnstone manager Steve Lomas and Falkirk boss Steven Pressley were also reported to have been interviewed at Turf Moor, while Blackpool's Ian Holloway was also linked with the job.

Howe left Burnley on October 12 to return to his former club Bournemouth after 21 months in charge.

Since his departure, Burnley have won two of their three games under caretaker manager Terry Pashley and the club currently sit 14th in the Championship.
