And, as to be expected following continued links to Selhurst Park, a number of Eagles supporters were quick to react to the news on social media.
Steve Parish was on the search for Roy Hodgson’s successor over the summer and placed Dyche on a list of possible Palace candidates.
Would Dyche have been a better fit at Palace over Vieira?
No, Parish got it spot on!
The Eagles were told it would cost £3m in compensation for Dyche, and as we now know, decided to bring in Patrick Vieira instead.
Vieira chalked up his first Premier League win for Palace over Tottenham last weekend, with the Eagles currently sitting above Burnley in the table.
Palace fans react
Burnley shared the news of Dyche’s new deal on their official Twitter page. Their post received plenty of interaction, with a number of Palace responses available to view below.
“Waited to see if Vieira was actually any good before committing to Burnley”
“Bless him he waited so long for us to save him and we never did”
“He even waited to see if Vieira would do a de Boer and we came calling before signing the deal. Maybe one day, Sean.”
“We’ll probably go for him if Arsenal come in and nab Vieira”
“I can see this man managing them in the 2030s”
“Burnley extend their stay in the Premier League by 4 years”
