The Sun says the Clarets will claim a huge £10million in compensation for Dyche.
The highly-rated boss could become a hot property in the merry-go-round this summer if the Clarets start running out of cash after the coronavirus shutdown.
But any club-owner admirers will face a major obstacle — the cost for his services.
That is not stopping interest in Dyche, who will have talks over future Burnley budgets at the end of this season to find out where he stands.
The fee for Dyche, 48, includes the backroom staff who have been key to his success in keeping the Clarets in the top-flight since 2016.
Dyche is on a large basic salary at Burnley and has also picked up big bonuses.
