Huddersfield Town manager Lee Clark says he will not be applying for the vacant job at Leicester City.

The 38-year-old has been linked with replacing Sven-Goran Eriksson.

But Clark told BBC Radio Leeds: "I'm not applying for any job - I'm a Huddersfield manager working for a fantastic man and a fantastic board.

"Whether it's just to fill areas in newspapers, I don't know, but there has certainly not been any contact with me or my representatives."

Leeds United manager Simon Grayson has also denied being interested in taking charge at the King Power Stadium.

He said: "It's a club that's very close to my heart but this club is far closer to my heart.

"I've had an affiliation with Leicester in the past, but my sole aim is to do well for Leeds.

"I'm totally focused on Leeds and that focus has never dwindled during my time at the club.

Clark happy to remain a Terrier

"I'm delighted things are going well here and I want to continue doing the job I've set out to do."

Former England Under-21 international Clark, who signed a new contract with the League One promotion hopefuls in July, added: "I've never had a phone call from Dean [Hoyle, the Huddersfield chairman] or [chief executive] Nigel Clibbens, to say that they've had contact.

"I'm here - I've never heard anything about any other job and that's the way it is.

"It's the same when my players get linked and you ask me. I think everyone should be proud inside the club if that's the case because it means we're doing something right.

Huddersfield drew 2-2 with Scunthorpe on Tuesday to extend their unbeaten run to 40 games.

And Clark added: "As you can see I was totally committed like always. I'm delighted we've made 40, and I'll be at the training ground in preparation for another tough game on Saturday."
