Dyche, who has been Everton manager since January, insists the ongoing talks will not have an impact on him or his squad - and that he’s yet to speak to anyone at 777.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference ahead of Sunday’s Premier League fixture against Arsenal, said: “No impact on me at the moment or the players. Of course, as manager I was aware something might be happening but I know as much as you.

“There are ongoing checks with the Premier League and alike and that will take some time. Not at this stage (he hasn’t spoken to anyone at 777). Strong news this morning was breaking to me as well. I knew there was some noise but not the actually details and I'm sure in due course I will speak to whoever I need to but at this stage it’s too early for all that.

“I don’t know the group who arecoming in at any depth at all. The people involved, working with or could be working with and then you fathom that out as you go. I don’t know their different thoughts until I speak to them about their vision of the future is.”
