Cardiff boss Malky Mackay admits he is flattered to be linked with the Everton manager's job, but insists all his focus is on the Bluebirds.

Mackay is reported to be among the frontrunners to replace David Moyes at Goodison Park when his fellow Scot leaves at the end of the season to take over at Manchester United.

Former Watford boss Mackay, who has guided Cardiff to the Championship title and promotion to the Premier League this season, is happy to be linked with the Everton role, but is focused on his current job.

"It's certainly very flattering to be linked to such a job like that but I've got something that we've built and we're really looking forward to coming into the Premier League," said Mackay.

"I've got an awful lot of hard work over the summer, concentrating on my job, as I'm doing at the moment."
