Quique Sanchez Flores rejects chance to replace Mark Hughes

But in a press conference on Saturday, Flores confirmed that he would be remaining at La Liga side Espanyol for the foreseeable future.

Flores was successful in the Premier League with Watford in 2016 and he managed to secure a mid-table position for the newly promoted club.

'I am and will be the manager of Espanyol, ' he said.

It has been reported that Sanchez Flores has been offered a five-year contract by Stoke and was set to inform the club of his decision last night.

"It happened three weeks ago with Gerard Moreno, but we have to think that we are happy with Espanyol".

"I live in a big city, in one of the best leagues, and I have reason to be happy and not to live anxious".

'I belong to Espanyol.

Martin O'Neill and Derby County manager Gary Rowett have been linked with the job vacancy, with the latter recently ruling himself out of a move after he signed a new deal with the Rams.

"O'Neill has still not decided whether to accept their offer as he and his assistant Roy Keane are excited by the challenge of building a new, younger Ireland squad during their European Nations Cup campaign, which starts later this year", writes Edwards.

The Potters sacked Mark Hughes last Saturday with the club in the Premier League relegation zone.

First-team coach Eddie Niedzwiecki will take charge of Monday's Premier League game against Manchester United at Old Trafford.
