Aberdeen managerial target Jimmy Thelin has insisted he's had no contact from the Pittodrie club.

The Elfsborg boss has been linked with a shock move to succeed Neil Warnock at the relegation-threatened Dons, who have endured a nightmare campaign.

Swedish boss Thelin has been at Elfsboth for six years as manager and only signed a new two-and-a-half year deal in January.

But the 46-year-old was this week strongly linked with a move to managerless Aberdeen.

However, ahead of a pre-season friendly yesterday - against the Dons' Europa League conquerors BK Hacken - Thelin insisted he had no contact from anyone in Aberdeen.

Thelin said: "I haven't heard anything about it.

"Those responsible for the stories must be from Scotland."

Thelin has been linked with moves to clubs in England this season with Sunderland, Swansea City and Plymouth Argyle all linked with a move for him.

Thelin guided Elfsborg to runners-up spot in the Swedish League last season, but suffered a spectacular collapse when they only managed a draw against last-place Varberg in their penultimate game where a win would have clinched them the title.

They then lost a last-day decider at Malmo to lose the Allsvenskan on goal difference.
