HULL FC coach Richard Agar has poured cold water over rumours linking him with the soon-to-be-vacated Wakefield Trinity Wildcats hotseat.

Reports have suggested Agar is in-line for a move to the Rapid Solicitors Stadium for 2012 after rejecting a new role as Director of Rugby at the KC Stadium.

Supporters have also speculated that Wakefield could look at Agar as the man to replace the departing John Kear at the end of the season.

But Agar insists his future is with the Black and Whites and insists rumours linking him with Wakefield are far from the truth.

“The suggestions are that our new owner Adam Pearson has asked me to become a directory of rugby, which isn’t true,” he told the League Express.

He continued: “So there is absolutely no question of me leaving, or of my role changing at the KC Stadium.

“I don’t where that particular story came from, but it isn’t true.”

Justin Morgan, Brian Noble, Karl Harrison and Daryl Powell have also been linked with the Wakefield job but the club has yet to make any comment on their search for a new head coach.
