Dundee United fail with John Hughes approach

Inverness Caledonian Thistle reject an approach from Dundee United for manager John Hughes.

Dundee United have been knocked back in their bid to hold talks with Inverness Caledonian Thistle manager John Hughes.

It is the second setback of the week for the club after an approach for St Johnstone boss Tommy Wright was rejected as they continue to search for Jackie McNamara's replacement.

"I can confirm that Dundee United have, today, requested permission from the club to open discussions with team manager John Hughes," Inverness chairman Kenny Cameron revealed in a statement.

"The club have stated previously that we wish John to remain with us for this season and beyond.

"This position has not changed and the approach from Dundee United has been rejected."

United have also been linked with moves for Alan Irvine and Stuart McCall.
