The Lincoln City manager Danny Cowley has insisted that there has been no contact from Sheffield Wednesday regarding the managerial vacancy at Hillsborough.
The Daily Mail reported earlier this week that Cowley was in talks with Wednesday after turning down a £1.5-million-a-year deal, split with his assistant boss brother Nicky, at Huddersfield Town.
Sky Sports later claimed that those discussions were at an ‘advanced’ stage, but as far as the Lincolnshire Echo was concerned on Wednesday, the Owls had yet to make an official approach.
And speaking to the same publication on Thursday, Cowley appeared to back that up.
“It would be nice to put it [the speculation] behind me, but I’m not sure if I can,” said the 40-year-old. “You guys [the media] always seem to know more than I do.
“Ultimately, that’s where it is. There’s been no contact from Sheffield Wednesday and we’ve already spoken about Huddersfield.
“We can’t control what people say or write. All I can do is control where my focus lies and that is full on the game ahead and Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday.”

The Cowley brothers have already turned down moves to West Bromwich Albion, Hull City and, more recently, Huddersfield Town, according to The Daily Mail.
And the Imps boss has insisted that the sought-after pair will only leave Sincil Bank for ‘the perfect opportunity’.
After Wycombe, Lincoln City have a six-day break before their next fixture.
