Clark, who is reported to have met with Leicester officials this week, emerged as the hot favourite to replace Sven-Goran Eriksson at the Walkers Stadium, but remains focused on leading Huddersfield to promotion from npower League One.

The 39-year-old, who has steered the Terriers to a record 41-game unbeaten league run, told the club's official website: "I want to put an end to this speculation. I'm not interested in the Leicester vacancy. All I'm interested in is moving forward with the job at hand at Huddersfield Town.

"My staff and I, and most importantly my family, are very happy here. We get looked after unbelievably well by the club and we really appreciate it.

"My sole focus is on taking Huddersfield Town forward and achieving the goals that we're all so desperate to."

Clark added: "The speculation hasn't gone away and I apologise to anyone if not commenting on this earlier has caused any issues for the supporters. Regardless, now is the time that I want to put these rumours to an end."
