MK Dons have turned down an approach from Blackpool to speak to manager Karl Robinson.

News broke of Blackpool's interest in Robinson on Tuesday night, shortly before both clubs were in action in FA Cup third-round replays. After his side's 2-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday, Robinson revealed he planned to talk to his chairman Pete Winkelman to discuss the approach.

Following that meeting on Wednesday morning, the Milton Keynes club released the following statement: "It comes as no surprise that Karl's name is once again touted for one of the top managerial positions in the Championship as his bold and stylish brand of football has invited plenty of talk in the industry."
