Burnley manager Sean Dyche has ruled out a move to Sky Bet Championship side Derby County, according to TeamTalk.
There has been widespread speculation that the Rams were eyeing a move for the former Watford boss to replace Steve McClaren, who looks like he could leave for Newcastle United.
Dyche, 43, has done an incredible job with limited resources at Burnley and helped get the club promoted to the Premier League last season.
With a win over Premier League champions Manchester City and a draw against Tottenham Hotspur, Dyche is continuing to impress in his role at the club.
Speaking to the Burnley Express, Dyche said:
“I think it’s quite obvious the way I work here, I’m enjoying the challenge,”
“I’m not looking further afield, simple as that.
“Someone needs a story somewhere.
“It’s just football, that’s been going on for years, it maybe gets enhanced more nowadays.
“I remember reading when I was a kid, so and so is going there, I think it happens all the time, different levels, different jobs, it’s just when you are in the Premier League it is more openly available through the media.”
Steve McClaren’s Derby County currently occupy fifth spot in the Sky Bet Championship, and are on course to attain a play-off spot, whilst Burnley sit in 19th position in the Barclays Premier League.
The Rams face a tough test against fellow promotion hopefuls Brentford at the iPro Stadium on Saturday, in a game which is pivotal for both clubs.
