Cape Town - Burnley boss Sean Dyche insists there has been "no contact" from Everton over the managerial vacancy at Goodison Park.

Only caretaker-manager David Unsworth is ahead of Dyche in the bookmakers odds to succeed Ronald Koeman at Everton after the Dutchman was sacked by the Toffees earlier this week.

Dyche - who will celebrate his fifth year anniversary at Burnley next week - was linked with the job at Leicester prior to the Foxes appointing Claude Puel.

But while the 46-year-old is flattered by the interest in his services, he is yet to hear anything concrete from any interested suitors.

"The reality of the job when it's going well is you're likely to have some form of interest," Dyche told BBC Sport.

"I mentioned last week different links with different clubs have come around, but they are others people's stories, not mine.

"They are out of my hands. In the short to medium term I am going to continue working hard as I have done.

"The three things that can happen are still the same, either people want me out, there is club contact and you move on, or you have enough and you walk off.

"I doubt that is going to happen, but very rarely is football a forever story. Usually at some point things change."

Burnley next welcome newly-promoted Newcastle United to Turf Moor on Monday evening in an English Premiership clash labelled as a potential 'six-pointer' with both teams aiming for league survival.

Kick off is at 22:00.
