Motherwell's Stuart McCall says no Sheffield United approach

Motherwell boss Stuart McCall

Motherwell manager Stuart McCall says there has been no contact from Sheffield United regarding their managerial vacancy.

The Blades are searching for Danny Wilson's successor after losing out to Yeovil in the League One play-offs.

Former United midfielder McCall insists he has not been approached.

"I've obviously heard the speculation. It's not definite I'll be speaking to anyone," he said.

Chris Morgan, caretaker boss at Sheffield United, is one of seven candidates to be interviewed for the managerial vacancy.

McCall has steered 'Well to second in the Premier League this season, and was named Clydesdale Bank Manager of the Year.

He played for Sheffield United for a three-year spell from 2002 but insists he has had no contact with his former club.

"I've obviously heard the speculation but I don't know anything about them coming to get me on Monday," McCall said.

"I'm supposed to be going away somewhere on Monday, so they'd have to seek high and low!

"I know there's been speculation; I've been very fortunate to inherit a good bunch and we've added a few. It's about the players at the end of the day. Kenny (Black) and the staff have been terrific.

"You can't stop speculation and I've never once, I've said this to you before, looked to go elsewhere when I was a player, coach or manager. I'll never seek to go anywhere.

"If somebody comes to you to put an offer to you, or wants to speak to you, then I suppose you'd be willing to listen.

"There was a lot of speculation at Christmas time, when there was a lot jobs down south but I had no interest then and wanted to finish the season and look to keep as many players here as we can.

"It's speculation, who knows? We'll wait and see. The [Motherwell] board have always been open with me as I've been with them."
