Birmingham manager Chris Hughton has refused to discuss the possibility of replacing Roy Hodgson at West Brom.
The former Newcastle boss has impressed at St Andrew's this season, leading the Blues to the Championship play-offs following their relegation from the Premier League last year.
With Baggies manager Hodgson expected to be named as England boss by the Football Association on Tuesday, Hughton is thought to be among the potential candidates to succeed him at The Hawthorns.
But the 54-year-old, on a rolling contract after taking over at the Midlands club last summer, refused to be drawn on the possibility of a Baggies move and insists he is focused on Friday night's play-off semi-final first leg against Blackpool.
"I can only speak at this moment about what is fact and what is fact is that we have two tough games coming up," he told the Express & Star.
"I've got a group of lads that have worked very hard to get where we are this season. We very much deserve to finish in fourth place.
"Our focus is on these two games and that is taking 100 per cent of my focus and time. I'm in a job here which is an important job."
Hughton was heavily linked with the West Brom job 15 months ago following Roberto Di Matteo's sacking but talks with the club failed to come to fruition.
The manager added in a press conference on Sky Sports News: "There was no secret at that time but that's something that's very much in the past."
Hughton believes the FA has made the right decision going for Hodgson as the next England boss.
He said: "There is no doubt about his credentials. He has great experience in management and coaching terms."
