Little Linked With Rochdale
Paul Simpson quit the club at the end of the season, and Little is rumoured to be taking over the reigns next week.
However, a spokesman denied that Little has got the job: "The story as it stands is wrong. It's not at all certain that anyone will be appointed next week. We've got a another board meeting before any appointment is made."
City reached the play-offs in Little's first season at Boothferry Park in 2000/01, but he was sacked the following year after a run of bad results.
