Burnley next manager latest: Vincent Kompany ODDS-ON favourite after massive price swing, shortlist has 'shifted' claim

VINCENT KOMPANY is odds-on favourite for the Burnley job after a massive swing in the betting market.

The Anderlecht manager, 36, was available at 11/4 heading into the weekend, but Betfair have slashed his price to 7/10.

Previous frontrunners Joey Barton and Wayne Rooney have drifted to 5/1 and 6/1 respectively, while Chris Wilder is offered at 7s.

There's a big jump to the other contenders with Duncan Ferguson, Sam Allardyce and Rafa Benitez all priced between 22/1 – 33/1.

The task of finding a long-term successor to Sean Dyche was made all the more difficult after Burnley's relegation.

The Clarets' six-year spell in the top flight was ended after a 2-1 home defeat to Newcastle on the final day.

And now uncertainty reigns as the Championship beckons.

Burnley have to pay a 'significant proportion' of a £65million loan taken out with American financiers MSD Holdings in 2020.

Premier League TV money made up 90 per cent of the club’s revenue, and NINE players are out of contract.

These players include James Tarkowski and Matej Vydra, while Maxwel Cornet’s £17.5 million release clause is active.

There could also be bids for goalkeeper Nick Pope, Wout Weghorst and winger Dwight McNeil.

The Athletic claim that Burnley's shortlist will have 'shifted' now they are playing second-tier football.

And add that the likes of luring Kompany or Bodo/Glimt’s Kjetil Knutsen to Turf Moor could be 'impossible'.
