Steve McClaren has stated that he is staying at Derby County and his aim is to spend the summer making sure he has the Rams ready to get promotion next season.

Dismissing the talk of moving to Newcastle, McClaren says that he is under contract at Derby and his intention is to ‘sort’ them out.

With regard to NUFC, the former Boro boss says ‘Absolutely nothing has been agreed’.

Steve McClaren speaking to the Burton Mail, asked if he is staying at Derby:

“I am under contract, so yes. My intention is to sort this out, to come back and be refreshed. That is my intention.

“I will review the season in the next two days, find out what has gone wrong and make sure we sit down and learn the lessons, make sure it is a damn good summer.”

No one has told me otherwise:

“No one has told me otherwise and until somebody does and something happens otherwise, that is my determination.

“We must sit down and put it right. I am a part of that process, I want to be a part of that process to put it right.”

Speaking about the Newcastle speculation:

“Absolutely nothing has been agreed, absolutely nothing.

“What is happening at Newcastle, I don’t know, you will have to ask them. You will have to ask Newcastle what their plans are. I can say what our plans are here (at Derby).”
