Port Vale boss Adams flattered by Sheffield United link

Adams says he is focused on Vale's fortunes '[unless] something changes'

Port Vale boss Micky Adams has said he is flattered to be linked with the manager's job at Sheffield United following the departure of Gary Speed.

The former Fulham, Brighton and Leicester boss has been tipped to replace Speed, who left the Blades to take up the Wales job on Tuesday.

Adams told BBC Radio Stoke:"They will have received hundreds of applications and it's flattering.

"But until something changes that's all I can say."

Adams came through the youth ranks at Bramall Lane and makes no secret of being a Blades fan.

I'm a Sheffield boy, I played for the junior team, my mum, my brother and sister are based in Sheffield, Port Vale are doing great - I'd be disappointed if I wasn't linked with it.

"I'm a Sheffield boy, I watched Sheffield as a young boy, I played for the junior team, my mum, my brother and sister are based in Sheffield, Port Vale are doing great - I'd be disappointed if I wasn't linked with it."

However, neither Adams nor the Port Vale board of directors have had any approach from the Championship club and Adams says he is focused on Vale's home game against Barnet on Saturday.

He added: "Until my chairman and the board say they have had an approach from Sheffield United, or any other club, I'll just get on with my job here and I am pleased to be doing it."
