Warburton had emerged as the leading candidate to replace Dan Ashworth, who is leaving West Brom at the end of the season to join the Football Association as director of elite development.

Warburton, who is currently sporting director of Brentford, has emerged as a highly-rated figure in English football after co-founding the NextGen series.

But he now admits that he is unlikely to leave Griffin Park.

"I am flattered to have even been considered for such a position," he is quoted by the Daily Mail.

"But as it stands I have unfinished business at Brentford and the NextGen Series is in full swing."

The Baggies have been considering a number of candidates with Hamburg sporting director Lee Congleton, Ashworth's former assistant Andy Marriott, who is now working in Formula 1 with Mercedes, and Damien Comolli, formerly of Liverpool and Spurs, in the frame.

Rodgers: Sterling can be striker

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
