Wycombe Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth has said to the Bucks Free Press that he is flattered by the interest in his services but remains dedicated to his role with the Chairboys.

Over the course of the past few weeks, Wycombe Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth has been attracting significant by a number of sides in both the Championship and in League One, with the likes of Millwall and Sunderland among those keen on the Chairboys boss.

“I personally don’t want to be the only one who is flattered because it is a testament to the players, my staff, the fans and the support I have had from inside and outside the club. It is great. We wanted to put Wycombe Wanderers back on the map and I think we have done that.

“It has never been so crazy with the press and the phone ringing and talking about Wycombe doing so well and being linked here, there and everywhere.

“It is fantastic but I have a really big job now on Saturday. It is a huge game against Sunderland and I want to make sure that everyone is focused on that rather than what could be happening outside because at the moment I am sat here as Wycombe Wanderers manager and I am looking forward to Saturday.”
