Simon Grayson has told any interested clubs they are wasting their time as he is fully committed to managing Leeds. His blossoming reputation was further enhanced when Leeds recorded their first win at Old Trafford since 1981, dumping Manchester United out of the FA Cup to book a fourth-round trip to Tottenham.

However, any thought Burnley might have of offering someone familiar with the area a chance to cut his managerial teeth in the Premier League can be dismissed immediately.

"My commitment to Leeds United has never been in question," he said.

"I left Blackpool a year ago to join the football club I supported.

"Leeds is a fantastic football club and I am not interested in going anywhere else."
