Premier League club Burnley will dig their heels as they try to stop fellow English top flight side Newcastle United from poaching their manager Sean Dyche.

According to the publication from the Daily Mail, Burnley manager Sean Dyche is one of the front-runners to replace Rafael Benitez at Newcastle United.

It was revealed that Burnley will demand as much as £10m in compensation to give Sean Dyche the permission to take the Newcastle United job.

Former Chelsea manager Benitez will leave his job as the Newcastle United manager when his contract expires at the end of this month.

Rafael Benitez has been at Newcastle United since his interim appointment in 2016.

The Spaniard was named the new manager at Newcastle United towards the end of the 2015/16 season with the Magpies in deep relegation troubles.

Rafael Benitez was unable to save Newcastle United from suffering Premier League relegation at the end of that season but he still stayed on to sign a three-year deal and also mastermind their return to the top flight after the first season.

Benitez and Newcastle United won the English Championship title to secure their promotion to the Premier League at the end of the 2016/17 season and he has led the Magpies to 10th and 13th place in their two seasons back in the top flight.
