Thailand assistant manager Steve Darby insists a deal for national team coach Peter Reid to become Tony Pulis' number two at Stoke has yet to be reached.
Former Sunderland and Manchester City manager Reid was in the directors' box at St Andrews on Saturday to watch Stoke share a goalless draw with Birmingham City and Pulis confirmed he was hopeful a deal could be reached this week to bring the former England international to the Britannia Stadium.
"I am in daily contact with Peter, and at this moment nothing is concrete yet, but he regularly gets offered jobs as he was so successful over a long period with Sunderland," Darby told Press Association Sport.
"Nothing official has come to the Thai FA as yet, so at the moment it's an ongoing story. When the FA receives anything formally Dato Worawi plans a press conference.
"I'd be disappointed if he goes as I really enjoy working with him, but is football ever simple and logical?"
Pulis' current number two David Kemp is set to move to South America as part of the club's scouting network.
Reid was named as Thailand coach in July 2008, but has continually been linked with a number of roles and has openly admitted he would return to England if the offer was right.
"I do not have any information, nothing has been passed to me at this time," said FIFA Executive Committee Member Worawi.
"There may be some developments."
