Crystal Palace boss Dougie Freedman has dismissed reports linking him with the vacant manager's job at Championship rivals Leicester. He said: "It's a rumour, it's speculation.

"I'm very happy at Crystal Palace. I took over nine months ago and hopefully there's a long way left in this job.

"Speculation comes along, it comes with a lot of my young players as well and I tell them to focus.

"So that's exactly what I'll be doing, focusing on my job here. I've got a difficult job to take the club forward here and that's what I'm trying to do."
