Carlton Palmer has exclusively told The Transfer Tavern that moving to Crystal Palace would be a step up for Sean Dyche.
The Burnley boss is approaching the end of his ninth season at Turf Moor and confirmed their place in the Premier League next season following a comfortable victory over Fulham on Monday evening.
Would Arnautovic be a good signing for Palace?
Dyche has led the Clarets into the top-flight on two separate occasions and has now made them an established Premier League outfit, with this their fifth season at this level – two of which have ended in top-half finishes.
Such is Dyche’s work in Lancashire, he’s attracted interest from Crystal Palace, who are eyeing up potential replacements for Roy Hodgson, whose deal at Selhurst Park expires this coming summer.
The former England boss recently avoided questions about his future, but Palmer believes that should Hodgson decide against committing his future to Palace, it would be an excellent opportunity for Dyche to further his career.
He told The Transfer Tavern:
“I don’t think they’re similar level clubs. Sean Dyche has done wonders for Burnley. No disrespect to Burnley, but I think it’s a step up in terms of the wages they can pay and the players they can bring into the football club.
“There’s new owners going into Burnley and they’re going to be supporting Sean Dyche in the transfer market. Unless Sean is not given funds and he’s got to sell his best players, he’s not going to be happy and he’s not going to want to stay.
“But that’s all pre-assuming that Hodgson doesn’t stay on for another season.”
