Bradford City boss Phil Parkinson has rejected the chance to talk to Blackpool according to Sky Sports.

The Seasiders are on the search for a third manager for the season following Michael Appleton's move to Blackburn Rovers and were keen to talk to Parkinson who has guided the Bantams to a two-goal advantage over Aston Villa in the Capital One Cup semi-final.

It is believed that Parkinson has turned down the opportunity to speak with Blackpool as he is completely focused on his job with the League Two club.
