WEST HAM chiefs are lining up Burnley boss Sean Dyche to replace under-fire manager Slaven Bilic, according to reports.
Bilic’s team won their first game in four after staging an unlikely win against Tottenham in the Carabao Cup, scoring two quick-fire goals that sparked West Ham’s revival in a 3-2 win.
Chiefs David Sullivan and David Gold were concerned with the disastrous showing put on by the East-end side during their 3-0 home defeat against newly-promoted Brighton.
The board want to see evidence that Bilic can lead West Ham out of their current crisis before fully backing him.

The Hammers have won just two of their nine Premier League games this season.
And after the Hammers’ last home defeat, Bilic admitted he did not know if he has the faith of his bosses.
He said: “I don’t know. All that I can say is that I am the manager of the team and I take full responsibility.
“I am very experienced I have been there before, we talk about bouncing back last season, that is all I can say – what is going to happen?
