St Johnstone boss Derek McInnes sees his "immediate future" in Perth despite being linked with West Brom.

After leading Saints back into the SPL, McInnes has indicated he is staying put - and is reportedly expected to sign a new deal shortly.

He told the Daily Record: "It's flattering to be linked with jobs but I see my immediate future here with St Johnstone.

"I'm still trying to get one or two players in before we start back at training and I'm also trying to get something sorted out with my own future.

"St Johnstone have been good to me and I'm grateful to the chairman Geoff Brown for giving me the opportunity.

"I'm looking forward to working with the squad and the challenges we have ahead in the SPL.
