Huddersfield originally requested permission to speak to the Cowley and his brother Nicky over a week ago after meeting the club’s compensation figure, reportedly around £1million, though Danny ruled out becoming their new manager on Tuesday night following their EFL Trophy clash with Doncaster.
He admitted they made an approach: “For us, no disrespect to Huddersfield, who are an excellent club and have had an amazing period getting into the Premier League, but we have worked very hard at this football club over the years we have been here.
“Our club is in a really good place, so for us to consider moving our families and ourselves from this football club it would have to be the perfect opportunity.”
It was claimed he had negotiations with Huddersfield and that it had been at an advanced stage before breaking down amid rival interest from Sheffield Wednesday.
However they have since appointed Garry Monk as manager, and Cowley himself said there was no contact from Wednesday.
