Michael Appleton today played down talk linking him with Bolton.
The Pompey boss is among the bookies’ favourites to fill the post vacated by Owen Coyle on Tuesday.
But Appleton stated he hasn’t heard from the Trotters or been told of any interest by administrator Trevor Birch.
Appleton said: ‘From my point of view, until I’m contacted by Bolton or any other club out there or I’m contacted by the administrator to tell me there’s an interest, I’ll continue to work with the players.
‘They deserve my full 100-per-cent commitment. I’ll continue to do that until I know differently.’
