It seems Burnley boss Sean Dyche is planning his future at the club as they are going to play their last game of the season against Sheffield United on Sunday.
faced questions regarding his future at the club on Friday afternoon, a couple of hours after the surprise news that Nuno Espirito Santo is going to leave Wolves after their Sunday’s game against Manchester United, according toSky Sports
Dyche laughed off a question suggesting that their game against Sheffield United is also going to be his final game at Burnley and said that he is planning for the future with the Clarets.
"Unless I'm told by the powers that be, I'm not planning on that at the moment," he said.
"I've been asked that many times over my time here, probably since our first promotion I've been linked with other places and I'm still here.
"Equally I always say times change in football, it's very rare you're in a job for life apart from the likes of Sir Alex Ferguson or Arsene Wenger. Life does change but I'm still here and let's see where the future goes.
"I've had lots of highlights at Burnley and let's hope there's more to come.”
, whose ALK Capital group took over at Turf Moor midway through the season, has said this week that he is going to back Dyche in the transfer window this summer.
"I don't know if it was music to my ears because it needs to come to fruition," Dyche said.
"The chats I've had have been positive. It's not a situation of ripping it up and starting again, but they're talking in the right way in the sense of finding out how the finances work and how we can take it forwards.
"The club has been well run, we've got a healthy bank balance on the turnover and now it's about how can we stretch it without breaking it.
"The truth is it's about what players are available. It's not just about an amount of money, you need the right players. We could have spent money in January but we didn't feel the players were there that could have pushed us forwards.
"It's not just about money, it's about finding the right players."
Dyche also hopes that the changing situation behind the scenes will help the club to keep the key players. As an example, defender James Tarkowski’s contract is going to expire in a year and when Dyche was asked whether he thought the 28-year-old would be at the club next season, he answered:
"There's no reason not to.
"He knows his situation and what we think of him as a player. He knows he's an important player here."
Burnley are going to finish their season at Bramall Lane on Sunday, seeking a seventh away win that would match the club record in thePremier League
"That's a nice positive because everyone keeps talking about the home form," said Dyche, whose side have not won at Turf Moor since the end of January.
"It's been a very strong season away from home, but joking apart the home form has suffered, partly because of the lack of fans because the fans reward us with support through thick and thin.”
The return of England goalkeeper Nick Pope, who has missed back-to-back home defeats to Leeds and Liverpool due to a knee injury, could boost the Clarets’ chances on Sunday.
"The most positive news is on Popey, I think he's got a chance," Dyche said. "His body has settled down, the knee that's been troubling him a bit, so we'll see how he goes over the next couple of days."
