Port Adelaide coach Ken Hinkley has dismissed reports linking him with a switch to Greater Western Sydney and says he is fully focused on the Power.
Port are priced at 21/10 to finish in the top eight of the A-League and after recovering from a poor start to the season when they lost the opening five games, they are back on track.
GWS recently parted company with coach Leon Cameron and there have been suggestions that Hinkley could step into the role at the end of the season.
However Hinkley says it is nothing more than just speculation and he is fully committed to the job in hand. Guiding Port towards premiership success.
"I dismiss it," Hinkley told reporters on Wednesday. "I don't take any notice of it because I'm committed to Port Adelaide and I have got a job to do at Port Adelaide.
"This happens all the time, speculation just comes from nowhere and a lot of it, unfounded speculation.
"I should be able to have a reverse press conference sometimes and question some of the people who put some of those things out."
Hinkley was grilled about the rumours ahead of Thursday night’s clash with Richmond but the speculation is so far wide of the mark, he didn’t want to talk about it.
"Even talking about it, I am wasting my time," he said. "I am not interested in it. It's not something we have talked about in any way, shape or form.
"I am coaching Port Adelaide and that is my biggest challenge today, to make sure we're ready for tomorrow night's game."
