Paul Montgomery is committed to his job at Birmingham City.
The Brum chief scout has been linked with Chelsea as a replacement for their outgoing football director Frank Arnesen.
“It’s flattering that a club like Chelsea seems to have noticed my work,” the 57-year-old Geordie told the Birmingham Mail.
“However, I came to do a job at Birmingham with a manager I respect and like as a person – and I would like to finish what I have only just started.
“We are looking to build up a recruitment network here that will improve things for Birmingham.
“A lot of hard work has already gone in, and there is plenty still to be done.”
