Burnley manager Steve Cotterill has dismissed claims that he is ready to join Portsmouth.
Cotterill was linked with a move to South Coast as assistant to Harry Redknapp.
However, Cotterill - who has four years left on his current deal at Turf Moor - has rebuffed claims he was set to leave Burnley.
"I will not be going to Portsmouth as number two to Harry," he told the club's website.
"He is a good friend of mine, but that's as far as it goes."
Meanwhile, Cotterill has also denied claims that he close to buying Scunthorpe striker Billy Sharp.
"In relation to Billy Sharp, someone is being very active promoting him," he added.
"But if I had £300,000 to spend I would have spent it by now."
