The Charlton assistant manager is being muted as the next Luton or Huddersfield boss. However Parkinson has hinted his desire to remain at The Valley.

Phil was linked as the front-runner to succeed ex-Huddersfield boss Peter Jackson earlier this month and it now appears to be the same for the Luton position.

Parkinson joined the Addicks as part of Alan Pardew’s new coaching staff in January 2007, after leaving Hull by mutual consent in early December.

Although he’s only on a contract until the end of the season, Parkinson has said that he wishes to remain at the club and restore his reputation alongside Alan Pardew.

‘Alan [Pardew] has given me an important role at Charlton and after my short spell at Hull City at the start of the season, I just want to concentrate on our relegation battle and enjoy my football here at Charlton’, Parkinson told Sports News.

‘I enjoy working alongside Pards and long may it continue.’

Parkinson is renowned as one of the games best up and coming managers, but after hitting the headlines at Colchester then falling back down at Hull City he looks set to steady his ship with a long spell alongside Pardew at CAFC.
