Neil Warnock insists he has not been approached by newly promoted Hull City as they look to replace Steve Bruce.

The Tigers have been linked with a number of names since Steve Bruce resigned last month and left the club in a desperate position in the build up to the new campaign.

The Welsh FA last week refused Hull the chance to speak with Chris Coleman, while Gianfranco Zola still remains the favourite to land the job.

However, former Rotherham, Sheffield United and QPR boss Warnock has also been mentioned as a candidate, although he insists there is no truth in the claims.

Warnock said: “It’s a good job at a good club, but I’ve not heard anything from them – I don’t know who’s putting money on me!

“They were obviously hoping the Welsh FA [would let them speak to Chris Coleman], and that would be a better appointment than Gianfranco Zola.

“I’m not knocking him, but it’s a difficult job and league for someone like Zola to come in and do really well.

“But they have got to get a move on, because they’ve got to get some players in and it’s difficult to do that without a manager in place.”
