Brentford manager Dean Smith has pledged his future to the London club, after weeks of speculation regarding his future at Griffin Park.
Brentford just missed out on the playoffs this season, and Smith will be keen to mount a promotion push with the Bees next season.
Darren Moore is currently in temporary charge of the Baggies, and Smith has been touted as the bookies favourite to take over at The Hawthorns
However, he has seemed to pour cold water on the circulating rumours.
Speaking to West London Sport, he said “There’s always going to be speculation about managers or players when a side does well, particularly when it’s a club our size.
“There is a long-term plan at this club and I’m acutely aware of what I have got here and that is always a big factor. It is a proper family club.
“It is a good football club and I’m enjoying my time here.”
After missing out on the top six by just six points, Smith will already be planning the future as he looks to go one better next season.
“I have no idea if we will lose players in the summer, but they have developed as young men individually and as a group. It’s a privilege to be their head coach.” He said.
“If you leave it’s not always rosy and the grass isn’t always greener. There has to be a good reason to leave rather than moving on all the time.”
Brentford will be desperate to hang on to their manager, and it looks as if Smith has found a home at Griffin Park.
It looks like he will be in charge come the start of next season.
