Birmingham City boss Chris Hughton has dismissed talk of taking the West Bromwich Albion job.

Hughton is being linked with the post as Roy Hodgson prepares to be named new England coach this afternoon.

"I'm on a contract at this football club and it's only speculation - non-facts that are brought to my attention," he said this morning.

"It's always very difficult to talk about things that are hypothetical and things that are very non-fact.

"I have a contract at this football club, we are in a good place at this particular moment because the focus is on these play-off games.

"It's very difficult to speak about anything that's not fact."

He added: "At this moment, it (the play-offs) are taking 100% of my focus."
