Barnsley boss Heckingbottom cool over Sunderland links

Barnsley boss Paul Heckingbottom has said he has had no contact with Championship strugglers Sunderland over their managerial vacancy.

Newspaper reports have suggested the 40-year-old is the favourite to replace Simon Grayson at the Stadium of Light.

"As it stands there is nothing in it," Heckingbottom told BBC Radio Sheffield.

"In the time I've been here there have been opportunities to go and if I didn't want to be here then I wouldn't be here."

He added: "Everyone knows how much I love it here."
