Wigan Athletic boss Paul Cook in Burnley frame

Wigan Athletic boss Paul Cook is being linked with Burnley.

The Daily Star says Cook will be a contender for the Burnley job should Sean Dyche leave this summer.

With Championship Wigan going into administration last week - and a 12-point deduction sending them into crisis on the field - the Premier League vultures are already circling over the troubled club.

And Latics' manager Cook, who has led them to the League One title and to the FA Cup last eight since taking over in 2017, is viewed as a potentially ideal successor for Dyche.

The Clarets manager is unhappy with his transfer kitty for the next transfer window and the club's failure to extend a number of contracts for the final month of Project Restart.
