Burnley to reward Dyche

Burnley boss Sean Dyche is in line for a new contract after guiding the club to promotion.

The Clarets' place in the top flight was confirmed at the weekend and capped a remarkable season for the Lancashire outfit, who at the start of the season were tipped for relegation.

Burnley chief executive Lee Hoos has admitted the club will be looking at Dyche's situation.

"Sean has done an excellent job with the resources at his disposal and the best contracts are when people get rewarded for something they have deserved," Hoos told the Daily Telegraph.

"Ever since he came in he has understood what he was working with and it's been a remarkable achievement this season. The planning starts now but I can promise that we will be responsible and aim to invest properly.

"The financial aspect is a huge boost for the club because only a few years ago we were fighting for survival, having to sell the ground and then lease it back.

"Even though next season we'll be a Premier League club we will maintain a sensible approach - it's about the next 12 years and not the next two or three years."
