Huddersfield caretaker manager Mark Hudson says he has no idea whether Jan Siewert is poised to take charge of the club.

The Borussia Dortmund coach has been linked with the vacancy following the departure of David Wagner, but Hudson does not know if an appointment is imminent.

Siewert was not at Huddersfield’s 3-0 home defeat to Manchester City even though a TV reporter mistook someone in the directors’ box for the German.

Hudson said: ‘I was asked to take charge this week, leading to Sunday. For this week I will have a few conversations later today or tomorrow and see where we go.’

The game was Huddersfield’s first since the departure of their popular manager Wagner last Monday. The defeat was their ninth in 10 games – the other being a draw – and left them 10 points off safety but caretaker manager Mark Hudson was pleased with the players’ efforts.

Hudson said: ‘It has been a long week, I enjoyed it, especially as the players took on board what I asked and they fought until the last seconds of the game. I said thank you to all the players for what they have given me.’
