HUDDERSFIELD Town chief executive Nigel Clibbens has denied reports Leicester have asked to interview Lee Clark for their vacant managerial position.
While protocol suggests an approach immediately before important games for both teams would be unlikely, speculation about serious interest from the Championship club continued.
Clark, who has guided Town to second place in League I on the back of an unbeaten league run which could be extended to 41 games at Yeovil this afternoon, heads the betting to replace sacked Sven-Goran Eriksson in the East Midlands.
But as Martin O’Neill drifted in the market to agree a second spell in charge of the Foxes, who visit West Ham today, Clibbens said: “We have had no contact from Leicester.
“We had a routine board meeting on Tuesday when we discussed ongoing plans for the remainder of the season, and as far as we are concerned, it’s business as usual.”
Clark has agreed to extend left-back Liam Ridehalgh’s loan to League II Swindon for a further month. The deal now runs to December 30.
