SEAN Dyche’s frustration over contracts and transfer funds could see him leave Burnley this summer, according to reports.

The Clarets boss has been outspoken about how chairman Mike Garlick and the board have handled the club’s out of contract players.

Phil Bardsley has signed a new one-year deal but Jeff Hendrick is among those to depart at the end of the month.

With injury problems to contend with as well, Dyche was only able to name seven substitutes for the 5-0 defeat at Manchester City, two of those goalkeepers.

Now The Daily Mail report that things have become so strained that the Clarets manager since October 2012 could walk away with two years left on a contract he signed in January 2018 having also been told transfer funds will be thin on the ground ahead of next season.

Dyche did however deny his frustration over the situation was indicative of larger problems in his relationship with the board.

“I had to chuckle because I heard somebody say the other night it’s the first time that Sean Dyche has questioned the board,” he said ahead of Thursday night’s game against Watford.

“I think most boards would be happy if they only got questioned every seven-and-a-half years.”
