SEAN Dyche said he is getting on with the job at Burnley, despite continued links to the vacant position at Everton.

The Clarets boss, whose fifth anniversary is on Monday, has been tipped as a contender to replace Ronald Koeman at Everton.

But Dyche insisted his only focus was on preparing his side for Monday night's visit of Newcastle United.

"I've said a few times of varying clubs that have been mentioned, you're always flattered because it recognises the work myself and my staff do," he said.

"It's other people's story, it's not mine, but it's right that I get asked about it, of course.

"Yet again it's another good club. I'm respectful of all clubs in all situations, but I'm equally respectful of my situation here."

Asked whether speculation preyed on his mind at all, Dyche replied: "No. Just get on with it.

"I've had the experience of those sort of links at various times more so the last couple of years. I've just continued to get on with what I do here and that's the focus."

Meanwhile, Dyche is hopeful of a return for striker Sam Vokes after his missed last weekend's defeat to Manchester City with an abdominal strain.

However, the chances of Chris Wood recovering from a hamstring injury which forced his early exit at the Etihad seem less likely for Monday.

"It's promising with Vokesy. Woody is a maybe, we'll have to wait and see," said Dyche.

"We're pleased it's nothing too major but whether it's right for Monday we'll have to wait and see.

"It's settling already, it's whether the game on Monday is right for him or not.

"Vokesy has got a stronger chance, he's out on the grass so we think he'll be available."
