English Championship club Blackpool have been unsuccessful in their pursuit of Dundee United manager Jackie McNamara.

The Seasiders enquired about the availability of the Tangerines boss but he has made it clear that he plans to continue on his current role at Tannadice.

"While flattered at the interest shown, I am very happy at Dundee United and wish to continue the job and build upon the foundations laid down," said McNamara.

"I view the approach as a positive endorsement of all the hard work undertaken by everyone at the club in that period and have no plans to leave.

"All of my focus is on the forthcoming William Hill Scottish Cup final and preparations for the new season ahead."

Blackpool have been looked after by former Rangers star Barry Ferguson on an interim basis since the sacking of Paul Ince in January.
