Scot has just guided the Bluebirds into the Premier League for the first time.
Cardiff City manager Malky Mackay has played down talk of him taking over from David Moyes as the next Everton boss, says BBC Sport Online.
Mackay, 41, has just guided the Bluebirds into the Premier League for the very first time in the club’s history after winning automatic promotion to the top flight having won the Championship.
And following the shock news last week that current Everton head coach Moyes would be leaving Goodison Park at the end of this season to replace the retiring Sir Alex Ferguson in the Old Trafford dug-out, Mackay has been heavily linked with the vacant managerial post on Merseyside.
However, the Scot has insisted that he is happy at present in South Wales and that he is only concentrating on the upcoming season with Cardiff.
“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,” Mackay told the BBC Match of the Day 2 programme.
“I’ve got an awful lot of hard work over the summer.”
Mackay has been at Cardiff since June 2011, when he arrived from fellow Championship outfit Watford, during which time he has won 49 of his 105 games in charge of the club.
