Robinson is rumoured to be on Bournemouth's radar to succeed Paul Groves, who was relieved of his duties last week.

However, Winkelman told the Daily Echo: "There hasn't been any official approach from Bournemouth, no. Not that I am aware of."

Robinson, 32, has a growing reputation having guided the Dons to the League One play-offs in each of the past two seasons.

Appointed to his first managerial post aged just 29 in May 2010, Robinson became the youngest manager in English football - replacing then-Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe as the youngest in the Football League.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
