Leicester City have not had any contact with Martin O'Neill over their vacant managerial position according to the vice-chairman, Aiyawatt Raksriaksorn.
Following the departure of Sven-Goran Eriksson, Leicester are in pursuit of a new manager to help them to realise their ambition of promotion from the Championship to the Premier League.
And O'Neill, a popular former manager of the club who took them into the top flight in 1996 and won the League Cup twice in 1997 and 2000, has been mentioned as a possible replacement.
But Raksriaksorn maintains that, as yet, there has yet to be any contact with O'Neill about returning to the club he left to join Celtic.
When asked about the possibility of approaching O'Neill, Raksriaksorn said: "I don't want to say that because I have to open my mind now, not just what the news or the fans want. I have to listen to everyone and make a decision very carefully.
"The next manager should be taking us to the Premier League and I think he has to know this league because it's very tough, very tight.''
O'Neill, who has been available since leaving Aston Villa in 2010 is, alongside Mark Hughes, one of the favourites to be Eriksson's successor while the Leeds United manager, Simon Grayson and the Huddersfield Town manager, Lee Clark, have distanced themselves from the job.
