Davey rejects Preston link

Barnsley boss Simon Davey insists he wants to remain at Oakwell, despite speculation linking him with the managerial vacancy at Preston. The rookie manager helped the Tykes avoid relegation in his first season last year before guiding them to tenth place in the Championship table this term. But, despite talk of interest from Preston where he spent three years as a player, the former Barnsley academy manager claims he wants to stay with the South Yorkshire club. Davey was handed the managerial reins last November following the departure of Andy Ritchie. "I have a great relationship with chairmen Gordon Shepherd and Patrick Cryne and I have only just started the job here," he told the club's official website. "We are still improving and I want to continue taking this club forward. I want to see this job out."
