His new deal needs to be confirmed by in-coming owner Carson Yeung and Bruce said: "It's been presented to the Chinese and the prospective owner has told me that he wants me to stay in charge. He's bound to say that, isn't he? It may be only natural if he wants his own people in.
"I'm just a bit disappointed because I was offered the deal in May. I went away on holiday and by the time I came back, everything had changed."
