Sean Dyche distances himself from the vacant Aston Villa job, insisting that he is fully focused only on helping Burnley get back to the Premier League.

Burnley manager Sean Dyche has distanced himself from the vacant Aston Villa post.

Villa have reportedly identified Dyche as one of their top targets as they look to find a manager to lead the club's rebuilding process, with Premier League relegation all but a certainty this term.

Dyche, whose Burnley side are top of the Championship and on course to return to the top flight after just one season away, says that he is only focused on the Clarets.

"We're making a good fist of what we can achieve here, that's my focus, it's the team's focus, we want to get Burnley in the Premier League," he told the Lancashire Telegraph.

"There's a lot of things said, a lot of angles, a lot of connections over nothing. My focus is here."

Meanwhile, Burnley announced today that they returned a profit of £30.1m, a club record, during their 2014-15 stint in the Premier League.
