THE New Saints owner Mike Harris has remained tight-lipped over his next choice for the Park Hall hot-seat.

With nearly two weeks passing since Harris dispensed with the services of Scott Ruscoe after the goalless draw with Bala Town, with former player Christian Seargeant placed in temporary charge.

On Thursday, reports linked the former Wales, Sunderland and Fulham manager Chris Coleman with the position and the task of reclaiming the Cymru Premier League from Connah's Quay Nomads.

However, Harris declined to comment on the reports that Coleman was one of the candidates.

It is believed that Saints are currently at the stage of finalising a shortlist of candidates, with Harris previously stating he had been impressed with the standard of applicant.
