Cape Town - Burnley manager Sean Dyche insists he doesn't read too much into the reports linking him with a move to fill the void left by Ronald Koeman at Everton.
The Clarets have made a strong start to the Premier League season, having lost only twice in their first nine games, and occupy 10th position in the standings.
Dyche's performance as manager at Turf Moor this season has resulted in many pundits backing the 46-year-old as a great candidate to take over at Everton, who are struggling for form. However, Dyche remains unfazed by the hype, claiming that it could die out very quickly.
"It's the yin and the yang. You get praise, but you lose three games and then you're getting slaughtered," Dyche told Sky Sports.
"I don't mean that in a precious way, it's just a fact, that's how quickly the shift occurs. You have managers out there who may have a tough streak, it doesn't make them a bad manager. They're just going through a tough spell.
"That can happen. So I don't read much in the media, I know what I've said so I don't keep checking up on things.
"There have been some nice things said recently, some nice links, but the fact is I'm still here and still working hard."
Burnley next travel to St. Mary's Stadium to face Southampton in an English Premiership clash on Saturday.
Kick off is at 17:00.
