Huddersfield Town boss Lee Clark has refused to rule himself out of the vacant manager`s position at Leeds United.
Clark was speaking at his press conference ahead of their game with MK Dons this weekend and he says he is aware of the speculation linking him with Leeds, and believes his record at Huddersfield is why he continues to be linked with a number of vacancies, including the recent vacancy at Leicester City.
Speaking to Yorkshire Radio, Clark said, “I am aware of it. I am not trying to blow my own trumpet but obviously, people outside of this football club can see that I am doing a good job.
“I have been linked to many jobs over the last twelve months. I think my record backs that up, two defeats in fifty-three games. The value of the squad is much higher than when I came to the club, the corporate side of the club is going through the roof, and that is due to the way the team plays.
“I`m not a bad manager really. I think that is why people are interested.”
Clark was asked if he was ruling himself out of the running for the job but refused to do so. “It is just speculation and until I am told otherwise I am manager of Huddersfield Town,” continued Clark.
Clark is the current favourite with the bookmakers to take over at Elland Road.
His odds tumbled from 10/1 to just 6/5 with bookmakers William Hill on Thursday.
Neil Warnock, who was the early favourite, is now 11/4 for the job whilst Barnsley boss Keith Hill has seen his odds shortened to 8/1.
Current caretaker manager Neil Redfearn is 8/1 whilst former crowd favourite Gordon Strachan is as short as 7/1 for the job.
Meanwhile, Gus Poyet and Paulo Di Canio have both ruled themselves out of the running.
Leeds have confirmed today that they have been inundated with approaches for the job but have yet to approach anyone.
