Burnley football club have revealed that Sheffield Wednesday made an approach with view to speaking to Steve Cotterill about the vacant manger's position at Hillsborough.
The Owls wanted the Burnley boss to replace sacked manager Paul Sturrock, on the same day that sections of the Wednesday support staged a protest against the sacking of Sturrock before their 3-2 home win over QPR.
Chairman Barry Kilby said: 'We refused Sheffield Wednesday permission to speak to Steve on Friday.
'When any managerial job becomes available at the moment we have come to expect that Steve, one of the brightest young managers in the division, will become a target.
'Steve is clearly an ambitious man who wants to manage in the Premiership and I believe he can do that.
'But as far as we are concerned, we see our future as a Premiership club. We are going for promotion this season and we can do without these distractions.'
On the pitch, the Clarets played out their second consecutive goalless draw with Plymouth at Home Park.
The point sees the Clarets climb to 4th place in the league, and remain the only side still unbeaten away from home in the division.
