Grayson cools Foxes link

Blackpool boss Simon Grayson has cooled speculation linking him with the vacant managerial position at Championship rivals Leicester City. The Seasiders boss, who made over 200 appearances during five years as a player with the Foxes in the 1990s, has been tipped to replace the sacked Martin Allen at the Walkers Stadium. But Grayson insists he is happy to remain at Bloomfield Road after guiding the club to promotion vial the League One play-offs last season. "The link goes together with me doing well as a manager and also having played for them," he admitted. "But it's pure speculation, and that's all it is. "I'm working as hard as I can here and hopefully I'll carry on doing that for a long time."
