Craig Bellamy is reportedly unlikely to follow Vincent Kompany to Bayern Munich.

Kompany, who was relegated with Burnley last season, is believed to be in advanced talks with the German giants over becoming their next boss, as they look for a successor to Thomas Tuchel, whose exit was confirmed last week.

Bayer Leverkusen's Xabi Alonso, Germany boss Julian Nagelsmann and Austria coach Ralf Rangnick have all turned down the role, but it now looks like the Belgian could well take the reins.

The 38-year-old is expected to take his Clarets backroom team with him to Munich, with some suggesting that this would include number two Bellamy.

However, the Telegraph now claim that the former Wales international is unlikely to link up with his current boss in Bavaria.

Instead, Bellamy could now potentially be one of the candidate to take over at Turf Moor, although his appointment would clearly be a risk.

But has never been a manager in his own right before, and it remains to be seen whether he's a candidate who would appeal to the Clarets, who will no doubt be looking to win promotion back to the Premier League at the first time of asking.

Other managers currently available include David Moyes and ex-Swansea City boss Steve Cooper.

In terms of Kompany, Bayern are reportedly confident of getting their name, and a move could well be confirmed within the coming days.
