Huddersfield Town insist there has been no approach by Fulham for manager Lee Clark to succeed the departed Roy Hodgson at Craven Cottage.

Clark, chairman Dean Hoyle and chief executive Nigel Clibbens all deny talking to the Premier League club.

Clark, who played more than 170 games for Fulham, said: "There has been absolutely no contact. I don't want people to become unsettled.

"I don't want anything to detract from what is a massive season for our Club.

Clark, 37, who played for Fulham between 1999-2005, added: "It came as a genuine surprise to me when I saw the story on television, but I take the same attitude towards it that I do when our players get linked with clubs from a higher division - it's a good sign that these clubs are interested because it means that we are doing things right here."

Speaking to the club's website, he continued: "We've had a terrific first week of pre-season since the players came back on 28 June and we are all currently at our pre-season training camp. I'm completely focussed on getting things ready for the new season with Huddersfield Town.

"I've been in the process of strengthening the squad all summer and I'm really pleased with the signings we have made so far; hopefully there might be a couple more ahead of the start of the season.

Clark has been at the Galpharm Stadium since December 2008 and led Town to the League One play off semi-finals in his first full season in charge.
