Gary Rowett has rejected speculation he could walk away from Birmingham City to replace Steve Bruce at Hull City.
Hull are on the hunt for a new boss following Bruce’s shock decision to resign from his role as manager.
Rowett has impressed during his time with Birmingham, having previously enjoyed a successful stint at Burton Albion, and he has been linked with a move to Hull as a result of his exploits at St Andrew’s.
However, the 42-year-old has moved to end any speculation he could replace Bruce by insisting he remains committed to Birmingham.
“Rumours about Fulham, rumours about QPR, rumours about Derby, rumours about Hull yet I am still here talking to you,” said Rowett, as reported by the Hull Daily Mail.
“I kind of wish people would maybe give me a little bit of credit as well that I am not just going to have my head turned with every single move. We all know how the game works, you can never say never as a manager, you never say never as a player of course but I think I would hope my commitment wouldn’t be questioned.”
Hull are expected to name a new manager next week and former Everton and Wigan boss Roberto Martinez is the favourite with the bookmakers, while former USA boss Bob Bradley is also understood to be a contender.
