Barnsley manager Simon Davey has today spoken out to quash rumours linking him with a return to former club Preston North End.

Preston sacked manager Paul Simpson on Tuesday and yesterday's Daily Mirror linked Davey with a return to Deepdale where he spent over a decade as player and coach, but Davey has rubbished the idea and says he still has much work at Oakwell.

He told

"I am not going anywhere. The board of directors at Barnsley have been extremely loyal to me during my time here and I want to be loyal back to them.

"I have a great relationship with Gordon (Shepherd) and Patrick (Cryne) and I have only just started the job here. We are still improving and I want to continue taking this club forward.

"I want to see this job out".
