Brentford sporting director Mark Warburton has committed his future to the club.

He had been linked with a move to West Brom as a potential replacement for FA bound Dan Ashworth.

“It was very flattering to be even linked to such a senior role at a club of the stature of West Bromwich Albion,” he told the club’s official website.

“However, I am part of an exciting project that is well underway at Griffin Park and it is only right that my focus should be to help take the club forward and achieve its aims and ambitions.

“I enjoy an excellent relationship with Uwe Rösler, Ose Aibangee and all of the football staff and we are very fortunate to similarly enjoy the support of a club Board which is totally committed to taking the club to the next level.”
