However, Hughes has dismissed the suggestion.

Hughes was reported to be on the brink of quitting the City of Manchester Stadium club due to concern over his control on transfers, and at a time when owner Thaksin Shinawatra's future appears unclear.

The former Blackburn manager said: "There have been a lot of rumours flying around but I am not going anywhere and I don't anticipate going anywhere.

"There is a job to do here and I am looking forward to it."

City's executive chairman Garry Cook has stated that Thaksin remains committed to his "10-year vision" for the club.

The club's owner is seeking refuge in Britain after he and his wife skipped a court hearing in Bangkok.

However, Cook has denied that the development would destabilise the club.

"City's future is not in jeopardy," Cook told the Manchester Evening News.

"In the short term, it is business as usual. We don't rely on Dr Thaksin's money."

At least it keeps the pressure off Keegan.
