McDermott snubs Wolves

Reading boss Brian McDermott has signed a new contract with The Championship club, despite reported interest from Wolves.

The Molineux outfit are looking for a new boss after sacking Mick McCarthy, and reports in the press have stated that the Madejski chief was high in the Midlands’ club’s priorities.

Despite this, McDermott is glad to have extended his stay with The Royals, and denies any contact from Wolves.

“I didn’t speak to Wolves,” he told Sky Sports.

“Wolves are a fantastic club with real good people running that club.

“They’ve got a really good team. I know Kevin Doyle and Stephen Hunt really well.

“For me it’s about the club that I’ve got here. The fans that we’ve got, they’ve been really, really good for me.

“It’s a good day for me. I’m absolutely delighted everything’s been sorted out. This has been on-going for the past three or four weeks.

“I’ve had good discussions with Anton [Zingarevich], our new owner. It’s very pleasing.

“We had these conversations a while ago. The most important thing for me was to get it sorted. It’s been sorted, so we now can concentrate entirely on what we have to do against Middlesbrough on Saturday.

“It’s important Anton and I work really closely together because the relationship between the manager and the owner is vital.

“On Monday last week he said something to be me that was very, very important and once he’d said that there was only one place for me to be and that was here. That will be something that remains between me and him,” he admitted.
