Cardiff boss Jones flattered by West Ham link

Cardiff City boss Dave Jones has welcomed talk of interest from West Ham United.

Jones has been linked to be Gianfranco Zola's successor as the Italian manager's future is in doubt.

Jones told BBC Sport: "In football you never say never as you just don't know what is around the corner.

"You're always going to get speculation and I can't stop it.

"Some people say you're good enough, some people say you're not. What will be, will be.

"If you get to the play-offs and don't get promoted then all of a sudden you're not a good manager and you need to be gone or have taken the club as far as you can.

"Somebody will have an opinion about you but I'll just do my job. And everyone here is focused on what is going on here.

"But it is always nice to be linked with somewhere else as it means you must be doing something right."
