Advance deal: Burnley agree terms to appoint top Coach to replace Kompany

Burnley is in early talks to appoint ex-Fulham boss Scott Parker, sources say.
Burnley are in early talks with former Fulham manager Scott Parker to become their next manager, according to Football Insider sources.

The Clarets hope to wind up the appointment and make an announcement by the weekend.
Burnley are preparing for life in the Championship after being relegated from the Premier League under Vincent Kompany last season.

Kompany subsequently left Turf Moor to join Bayern Munich at the end of May, just days after the completion of the 2023-24 season.
Last month (15 June), Football Insider announced that former Chelsea manager Frank Lampard and West Brom manager Carlos Corberan had been interviewed for the position.

Parker has been out of work since leaving Club Brugge in March 2023, following only 12 games in charge.

Parker is likely to occupy the Burnley hot seat after Lampard and Corberan interviews.
The former England midfielder has previous Championship experience, having been promoted with Fulham and Bournemouth.

He led the Cherries to second place in the 2020-21 season and Fulham to the play-offs in 2019-20.
Parker has won 48 of 92 second-tier matches, averaging 1.84 points per game.
Burnley have permitted Bailey Peacock-Farrell, Charlie Taylor, Jack Cork, and Johann Berg Gudmundsson to leave the club this summer.


The Clarets begin their 2024-25 season against Luton Town on August 12.
