Lee Clark has broken his silence to insist he has no intention of leaving Huddersfield Town for the vacant manager's role at Leicester City.

Reports early on Thursday suggested the 39-year-old had informed his players he was departing the Galpharm for the King Power Stadium but, it would appear, this is not the case.

"I want to put an end to this speculation - I am not interested in the Leicester vacancy," the former Newcastle midfielder said in a statement.

"All I am interested in is moving forward with the job at hand at Huddersfield Town.

"My sole focus is on taking Huddersfield Town forward and achieving the goals that we are all so desperate to."

The Terriers are currently on an unbeaten streak of 41 games under Clark's stewardship - the fourth longest run in English football history.

It is, then, little wonder that Clark is in demand by clubs higher up the league ladder and, he admits, it is flattering to be linked with a move elsewhere.

"Obviously on a personal level it is satisfying to be linked to jobs at clubs in a higher division, but that is all I take from these links," he added.

"Players get linked to other clubs when they are doing well and you have to take it as a compliment in that sense.

"As I have also said, I believe these rumours are a compliment to Huddersfield Town too and we should take it as a positive that our success is catching the attention of people in the game outside of our area."
