Blackpool have made an approach to Oxford United for head coach Karl Robinson.
The Seasiders have been without a manager since sacking Simon Grayson on February 12.
Blackpool chief executive Ben Mansford had previously said the club were prepared to take their time to find a new manager.
They currently sit in 14th place in Sky Bet League One, 13 points and six places behind Oxford.
After Oxford's 3-0 home victory against Accrington, Robinson said: "It does seem as though there has been an official approach, from what everyone is saying, but I haven't got a clue - no one at the football club has told me anything.
"I have faith in the board that they will tell me if anything like this happens.
"It's nice that people are talking about it but I think I should have been told if we did get a phone call.
"But there has been a game - maybe they wanted to get that out the way first. So I don't even know if the speculation is true."
He added: "It's not about whether I want to go to Blackpool - it's more about how successful we want to be here.
"I will have to speak to the board tonight or tomorrow. I don't know what to say because I don't know where we're at."
Robinson, who has been in charge at Oxford for just under two years, has previously won promotion from League One with Milton Keynes Dons.
Both clubs declined to comment when contacted by Sky Sports News.
