Huddersfield Town have remained tight-lipped on speculation Norwich City assistant manager Lee Clark is being lined up to fill their vacant manager's position.

Weekend reports suggested Glenn Roeder's right hand man at Colney had a second interview with the League One side last week - a rumour strongly denied by the Canaries boss. But Huddersfield's chairman-elect Dean Hoyle has refused to be drawn on the possibility of 36-year-old Clark replacing Stan Ternent, who was sacked last month after just six months in charge.

"I won't comment on speculation," insisted Hoyle, speaking to the Yorkshire Post. "I'm saying nothing at the moment."

The story was given fresh impetus last night when Sky Sports 'broke' the news that Clark was about to be offered the job. But they soon removed the story from their rolling news server, and the EDP understands that the club have received no approach from any club - making any that may have been made an illegal one.

Huddersfield are not expected to make an imminent appointment and other names in the frame include former Watford boss and Norwich assistant academy director Aidy Boothroyd, former Norwich striker and current Rotherham boss Mark Robins, as well as Iain Dowie, John Ward,Chris Hutchings and Peter Jackson.
