Birmingham chairman David Gold is confident manager Steve Bruce will remain at the club after steering them back into the Barclays Premiership.
Bruce has been the subject of speculation suggesting he would quit Blues after six years even if they regained their place in the top flight.
But Gold, who kept faith with Bruce when fans wanted him to quit in October, is optimistic the former Manchester United skipper will want to oversee City’s return to the elite.
Gold said: "I have not heard the talk about Steve going. I am not sure where it has come from. But I have no reason to believe Steve won’t be here at the start of next season.
"Certainly as a board we have no reason for wanting him to go. We have stuck together these last few years and that’s what we will continue to do."
Co-owner David Sullivan said: "I always believed we had the best squad in the Championship. We had a very good mixture of players. We knew that to get out of this division you had to score goals. You had to have players capable of doing that - and we did."
Bruce insists that City will learn from the mistake of 12 months ago when they were relegated from the Premiership.
He said: "I believe we have all learnt from our mistakes - none more so than myself - and next season we will do things a different way.
"After those successful first three years, I went down the route of bringing in some big-name players and some aging players and it didn’t work.
"I went away from what I believed in and this season’s group of players are talented and committed and also have a freshness and enthusiasm about them.
"Of course we will look to strengthen in the summer but the way we are going to approach it will make sure the Birmingham fans have a team to be proud of."
