Swindon Town insist they have not received an approach for boss Paul Sturrock, who has been linked with the vacant manager's job at Leicester City.
Sturrock guided Swindon to promotion last season
"Any approach would not be welcome and the club remain committed to League One success under Paul Sturrock's guidance," a club statement read.
Coventry have already dampened speculation linking their manager Iain Dowie with the Walkers Stadium vacancy.
Sturrock has managed sides to four promotions in the last six seasons.
After spells in charge of Dundee United and St Johnstone, he led Plymouth from Division Three (now League Two) to the Championship, before a brief spell at Southampton when they were in the top flight.
Then, the Scot guided Sheffield Wednesday to promotion via the League One play-offs in his first season, and after joining Swindon last November, steered them back into League One at the first time of asking.
