Cape Town- Burnley boss Sean Dyche has described speculation linking him with the Leicester City vacancy as a “paper story”.
Dyche is the bookmakers’ favourite to become the next Foxes boss after Craig Shakespeare became the second Premier League manager this season to lose his job.
The 46-year-old has regularly been linked with managerial vacancies over recent months after establishing Burnley in the Premier League, yet insists he has had no contact from Leicester.
“First of all, I don't want any manager to lose their job. It's not the first time I've been linked,” said Dyche.
“In a way, you're flattered because it's some form of recognition. But it's a paper story.
“I'm not aware of any approach from anyone in any time here. There's nothing in my consideration other than Man City on Saturday.”
Dyche was reportedly a target for Crystal Palace during the summer, while he has also been linked with Everton, if the Toffees decide to sack under-pressure boss Ronald Koeman.
He believes the speculation is simply an inevitable part of football and doesn’t believe Burnley fans will take too much notice of it.
“I don't think they're getting fed-up of it. It's happened with me on a number of occasions,” added Dyche.
“I just think they know it's the lay of the land. That's the way it goes.”
