Alex McLeish insists his contract talks at Birmingham City are on track.
But the Scot is relaxed about the contract situation, telling the Birmingham Mail: "These things take time but, if we can get it done in the next few weeks, it would obviously give people peace of mind.
Birmingham City vice-chairman Peter Pannu added: I have touched base with Alex's representatives.
"We have had initial talks and we will talk again."
Regarding the Liverpool speculation, Pannu said: "I don't respond to idle gossip or rumour.
"If any club approached us for our manager, I would deal with it then - and no club has."
