Everton had already secured 14 points this season before they received the record punishment, a consequence of financial rule violations.
Despite the remarkable turnaround under Dyche’s guidance, discussions about prolonging his stay have hit a stumbling block.
Everton’s current hierarchy is eager to broach the subject of a contract extension, considering Dyche has only 18 months left on his existing deal.
However, the recent Premier League penalty has forced the Merseyside club to shelve these talks.
Everton are more focused on addressing the penalty that has left them precariously perched second from the bottom in the Premier League standings.
Behind the scenes at Goodison Park, there is a prevailing sentiment that Dyche should play a central role as the club looks ahead to a move to their new Bramley-Moore Dock stadium in the next two years.
However, current priorities demand immediate attention to navigate the challenges posed by the points deduction as Everton are embroiled in a relegation battle with the odds seemingly stacked against them.
The Merseyside club must recognise that Dyche’s continuity will be the bedrock for their survival in the top flight and the key to mitigating the impact of the unprecedented points deduction.
