Anderlecht coach Vincent Kompany in talks with Burnley

Anderlecht coach Vincent Kompany is in talks with Burnley.

The former Manchester City centre-back is said to be the the front runner to take over at Turf Moor after being named on a three-man shortlist of potential managers, says the Daily Mail.

Burnley - who were relegated from the Premier League on Sunday after six seasons in the English top-flight - will select their new boss by the end of next week.

Kompany is still eager to take control of the Clarets despite their relegation to the Championship following Sunday's 2-1 loss to Newcastle.

Burnley believe Kompany - who won four Premier League titles with Manchester City - could help the club bounce back next season.

The 36-year-old has been managing his boyhood club Anderlecht since leaving Manchester City in 2019, guiding them to third in the Belgian top flight this term.
