JUST IN: : Sean Dyche could dodge possible Everton sack twist after announcement today

Everton have been getting their season back on track in recent weeks, following a poor start to the season that saw pressure rise on Sean Dyche.

The Toffees won three of their past four matches in the run-up to the international break, eventually ending their Premier League winless streak and picking up their first three points at Goodison Park this season, all while reaching the Carabao Cup fourth round.

Everton’s improved record has slowed calls for Dyche’s dismissal, but it wasn’t long ago that the Blues were apparently looking for successors, with some claiming that the Toffees would be “front of the queue” to sign Wayne Rooney if he left D.C United [Dean Jones,

Instead, the former Manchester United and England forward has returned to English football with Birmingham City in the Championship after the Blues chose to remove John Eustace despite being sixth in the league.

Rooney has agreed to a three-and-a-half-year contract extension with Birmingham, which might put a stop to any immediate speculation that Everton would rapidly employ their former striker if Dyche is put under pressure again.

If Dyche is fired immediately, Rooney is unlikely to jump ship to join the Toffees, and given Farhad Moshiri’s reluctance to invest any further in the Goodison Park club while attempting to complete a sale, Everton are unlikely to front up a sizable compensation package for the former Derby manager.
However, if 777 Partners completes their acquisition of Moshiri’s 94.1 percent share in the Toffees, they may see it as a power move to buy out the former England record goal scorer’s contract.


In an open letter to supporters, Josh Wander, co-founder of 777 Partners, stated that there will be no magic wand to cure the problems at Goodison Park, and with the expenditure required to finish building of the Bramley Moore-Dock stadium, an immediate move for Rooney appears to be out of the question.

That might be a help for Dyche, given there have been few alternative recommendations for who would be suitable to take over at Everton if relegation fears resurface. With Wayne Rooney out of the picture, the former Burnley manager should be trusted to guide the Toffees back to safety.

Dyche, who averted Premier League relegation with Burnley and even Everton last season, is far better qualified to manage the Blues than the former United great, who has a victory rate of only 27.3% as a manager.
