Brentford football chief Mark Warbuton has turned down a move to West Bromwich Albion.

The Daily Mail says Warburton, Brentford's sporting director and co-founder of the European Under 19 NextGen Series, has surprisingly turned down the chance to succeed the FA-bound Dan Ashworth as technical director at West Bromwich Albion.

He said: "I am flattered to have even been considered for such a position. But as it stands I have unfinished business at Brentford and the NextGen Series is in full swing."
