Wigan assistant Graeme Jones emerges as a surprise contender to take over the manager's job at Burnley.

Wigan Athletic assistant coach Graeme Jones has emerged as a surprise candidate to be named as the new Burnley manager.

The Clarets are looking to appoint a new boss after Eddie Howe finalised his move to Bournemouth on Friday.

Jones could now take his first steps into management at Turf Moor, according to The Mirror.

The 42-year-old is thought to have turned down the chance to manage former club Swansea City over the summer.
