As the odds on Glenn Hoddle becoming the next Newcastle manager tumble, so much so, that Skybet suspended betting on him, the Wolves boss has once again been forced to issue a statement denying he is about to leave the club.

First it was Southampton, and now ?Toon, but Hoddle is still adamant his future lies at Molineux.

Speaking after training today, Hoddle told Wolves World :

‘ I can assure you there is absolutely nothing in this. It isn’t a story.’

It is a sign of how long labels stick in football that every time a high profile vacancy pops up, so does Hoddle?s name, seemingly on the basis that he once left a club to manage at his spiritual home.

Maybe now the press can leave him alone to get on with the job of helping Wolverhampton Wanderers gain promotion?
