Two of his former clubs may be in a Premier League relegation battle currently, but TNS manager Craig Harrison has told the BBC that he has ambitions to manage at "the highest level."

The former Middlesborough and Crystal Palace left-back has been linked with League 2 side Hartlepool United, who this week parted company with ex-Cardiff City boss Dave Jones after dropping into the League Two relegation zone.

Harrison says he is flattered but insists his focus is on Sunday's JD Welsh Cup final against Bala Town.

"I've said from day one that I'm a very ambitious person," Harrison told the BBC.

"I want to manage at the very best level I can. It's nice to be linked to these jobs. But at this point in time the (JD) Welsh Cup Final is the be all and end all for me.

"Once that's finished we'll be preparing for the Champions League and then whatever will be will be."

The Saints have already secured the Dafabet Welsh Premier League title and the Nathaniel MG League Cup and his side earlier this season broke Ajax's 44-year world record for the most consecutive wins with 27 straight victories.

Harrison's side will achieve an unprecedented successive Welsh treble-treble if they beat Bala in Sunday's JD Welsh Cup final in Bangor.
