Dave Jones has strongly denied applying for the Hearts manager role vacated by George Burley and more recently by Graham Rix. Reports in Scotland had suggested that Jones had made contact with Hearts Chairman Vladimir Romanov, but Dave Jones has laughed off the rumours as speculation barely worth commenting on:

‘At this stage in my career, I don’t need to apply for jobs,’ said former Southampton and Wolves boss Jones. ‘It’s all speculation, so how can I comment on speculation?’

Jones said he was flattered to be linked but was remaining focused on the job he was doing at Cardiff.

Cardiff fans will be pleased that Jones is expected to stay after the fantastic job he has done for us this season on such a tight budget, and that has obviously been noticed by higher profile clubs. Dave Jones has signed players to do a job and consistently got the best out of a small and tired squad, hopefully we can hang onto him whether we remain a Championship side or manage to sneak into the Premiership via the play-offs.
