Blackpool deny Houston approach

Blackpool deny Houston approach

Blackpool have denied making an approach for Dundee United's Peter Houston regarding their managerial vacancy at Bloomfield Road.

That follows the Taysiders already giving Houston permission to speak to the Seasiders, who are busily searching for a replacement after Michael Appleton joined Blackburn Rovers only last week.

"Karl Oyston rang their chairman on Sunday afternoon, and their chairman said 'if you want to speak to him, you can'," Blackpool's club secretary Matt Williams informed BBC Radio Lancashire. "Then it's all over the media that he's the bookies' favourite and people are thinking he's coming to Blackpool.

"The Dundee United chairman is someone Karl has spoken to on a number of occasions about various players and they had a conversation about the manager, who was put to us by an agent, I hasten to add," he continued. "There are a number of other candidates that we have spoken to. It's an ongoing process."

One of those originally interested, former Nottingham Forest and Doncaster Rovers boss Sean O'Driscoll, has already turned down Blackpool in favour of taking charge at Bristol City.

Meanwhile, MK Dons supremo Karl Robinson is the most recent manager to be linked with the position.
