Sources: Tottenham, Chelsea hit Kompany roadblock as Burnley make strong move to keep their man

Burnley manager Vincent Kompany is planning for the future

In-demand Burnley manager Vincent Kompany has been offered a lucrative new contract by the Clarets, TEAMtalk can reveal.

Kompany has a gathering army of admirers after impressing many with his work at Turf Moor.

Having arrived last summer from Anderlecht, he has rigourously shaken up the east Lancashire club. And having introduced a new possession-based playing style, Burnley have torched the Championship and sealed promotion at the first time of asking.

They currently have 92 points having lost just twice all season. And wins in their final four matches – starting on Saturday at home to QPR – can see them break the rarely-seen 100-point barrier.

Now preparing for their return to the Premier League, Kompany is regarded as a rising star in management.

However, demand for his services is growing as a result.

And reports suggest Burnley could face a tough battle to retain the 37-year-old’s services.

To that end, he features very highly on the shortlist for Tottenham, with chairman Daniel Levy seeing him as a solid candidate to replace Antonio Conte.

However, he also now features on a two-man Chelsea shortlist too, with Julian Nagelsmann now out of the race. That said, the Belgian is only second favourite for the vacancy at Stamford Bridge following talks with a big-name manager.

We can also reveal that admirers for Kompany are growing.

In addition to Chelsea and Tottenham, we understand that West Ham – who are set to replace David Moyes in the summer – and Crystal Palace also have an interest.

Burnley confident of keeping Kompany

Burnley, though, are confident that they can convince him to stay. With family in the north-west, Kompany is very much settled in the area.

And they are hopeful that he will stay on and help them to establish themselves back in the Premier League.

We can now reveal Burnley have made the move to try and tie down the Belgian due to that interest.

His deal at Turf Moor is currently due to expire in summer 2026. However, the Clarets want to reward him for his progress with a payrise and also further cement his commitment by extending his stay.
