Burnley have appointed Sean Dyche as manager on a two-and-a-half-year contract after Eddie Howe left the club to rejoin Bournemouth.

The former Chesterfield, Millwall and Watford defender led the Hornets to a top-half finish in the Championship in his one season in charge at Vicarage Road, before being replaced by Gianfranco Zola following the Pozzo family’s takeover of the Hertfordshire club in the summer.

However, despite Burnley’s disappointing start to the 2011-2012 Championship campaign that sees them languishing in mid-table, Dyche declared himself delighted to take on the role with the Turf Moor outfit.

“It feels fantastic to be invited to be the manager of a great club. It didn’t take me any time at all to accept the role, despite popular misconceptions,” he said on Burnley’s website.

“I wasn’t at home having the weekend to think about it. I decided instantly and we got on with things as quickly as we could, but things still need to be put into place contractually.

“I was at Cardiff on Saturday to have a look at that and it was finally great to get out with the players on Tuesday.

“This is a club in some kind of transition after a spell in the Premier League, but it is clearly a club that wants to build and move forward and I desperately want to be a part of that and make sure that we do that.”
