"I spoke to the players this morning in a pre-match build-up meeting and addressed the situation with the players. They are great," he said.

"We are now fully focussed on Sheffield Wednesday and we are ready for the league campaign. If anything, the players had the best day's training today since the day before the Fulham game in the second leg of the play-offs."

He added: "The players care about team-mates and they care about the industry they work in and understand the comings and goings in professional football, especially the senior players.

"Some senior players have been given as much knowledge as can be afforded to them for legal purposes, they run with it accordingly. They run my dressing room and they have been very understanding.

"Today after it was discussed we quickly refocused and are ready and prepared for Saturday."
