Dyche under consideration at Leicester

Former Burnley boss Sean Dyche is being linked with Brendan Rodgers’ job at Leicester City.

After their 6-2 thrashing by Tottenham, chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha and director of football Jon Rudkin will decide over the forthcoming international break whether Rodgers has reached the end of the road.

Brentford head coach Thomas Frank is the name at the top of their list of potential replacements.

But the highly-rated Dane only signed a new contract to 2025 in January and is in no rush to leave the ambitious west London club.

That could lead Leicester to turn to Dyche, who has been out of work since his shock sacking by Burnley in April and would not cost a penny in compensation payments, says The Sun.

Dyche, 51, lives in the Midlands and has also been linked with managerless Bournemouth in recent weeks.
