KJETIL Knutsen has responded to links with Burnley as the search for Sean Dyche’s successor continues.

The 53-year-old has been touted as a potential candidate for the Clarets after doing a stellar job at Bodo/Glimt.

The Norwegian club won the league title last season and also reached the quarter-final of the inaugural Europa Conference League.

Knutsen played down reports linking him with a move to Turf Moor and insists he is focused on his current role.

"I have no comment on that. I want to train Bodo/Glimt,” said the Norwegian.

“I’m going to repeat something that I have said 100 times. If you are not 100 percent where you are, consider doing something else.

“This is how I attack every single working day."

Knutsen was also linked with Norwich earlier this season before the Canaries appointed Dean Smith.

Middlesbrough boss Chris Wilder and Derby chief Wayne Rooney have also been linked with the Clarets in recent weeks.

Interim boss Mike Jackson suffered his first defeat over the weekend following a 3-1 loss against Aston Villa.

The Clarets are currently above the Premier League drop zone on goal difference with three games to go.

Jackson’s men are back in action on Sunday afternoon when they head to the capital to take on Tottenham (KO 12pm).
