Caley Thistle chairman Kenny Cameron has confirmed there has been no approach from Premiership rivals Dundee United for manager John Hughes.
Reports earlier today have suggested Hughes is being lined up for the Tannadice position by United chairman Stephen Thompson, following the sacking of Jackie McNamara in the wake of Saturday’s 2-1 defeat against St Johnstone.
Hughes guided Caley Jags to their most successful season last year, winning the Scottish Cup and finishing third in the Premiership.
Cameron says no contact has been made, and is determined to retain the services of the former Falkirk and Hibernian manager.
Cameron said: “We can confirm that there has been no approach from any club regarding John Hughes.
“Since joining the club in late 2013, when Terry Butcher moved on, John’s leadership has been inspirational and we are all looking forward to continued success together this season and beyond.”
Earlier in the week Hughes played down links with the job, insisting he is content in his current position at Caledonian Stadium.
Hughes said: “Being linked to other jobs is flattering but I’m happy where I am.”
