Leicester City are seeking talks with Burnley manager Sean Dyche.
The Daily Star says the 46-year-old Clarets chief is top of Leicester’s shopping list after they sacked Craig Shakespeare yesterday.
Dyche is considered the brightest of the new breed of English bosses after doing a brilliant job in his five years in charge at Burnley.
But he is continually having to work on the tightest of budgets and could be tempted away.
Leicester’s billionaire Thai owners are ready to dangle a £2m a year bumper deal in front of him with the promise of cash to spend.
Dyche heads the list of candidates who emerged following the surprise ending of Shakespeare’s reign after just four months in charge permanently.
