Wakefield have denied rumours that the RFL have approached John Kear about the vacant England coaches role.
The national team is currently seeking a full time replacement for Tony Smith, who resigned his post following the Four Nations campaign in the autumn.
Although Smith finished in a part-time capacity, having taken on the role as Warrington boss earlier in the season, the RFL have stated they are looking for his replacement to take up the position on a full-time basis.
An official spokesman for the Wildcats said: “John Kear has two years of his contract remaining with this club and there has not been any approach for him to take a job away from Wakefield Trinity Wildcats.
“John Kear has said that he is looking forward to working with the Wildcat team in 2010 and he is a valued member of the staff here at the Hearwell Stadium.”
He took over from Brian Noble in 2006 after the RFL decided that the job would become a full-time position. Previously, Noble had combined the coaching role with his job at Bradford and then Wigan.
