​Derby manager Rooney moves away from Burnley links

Derby County boss Wayne Rooney is distancing himself from the vacant Burnley job.

Media reports stated that the Premier League club were looking at Rooney as their permanent boss from next season.

While Rooney does want to manage in the Premier League eventually, he is still very much committed to Derby, even as they will be in League One next term.

Rooney said: "I heard that this morning on talkSPORT, it is the first I heard of it. Listen, there is nothing you can do about speculation, I get that.

"I think I have said a couple of times now it is a credit to myself and the staff and the job they've done that speculation is there, but I have said I have a year left on my contract here. I want to try and bring better days back to this football club.

"Now, of course, that depends as I have said over the last few weeks on the takeover going through. If it doesn't, then of course you might have to reassess that but if it goes through, I am here and ready to try and get this club back up into the Championship and move forward and try and bring some glory days back here."
