Colin Calderwood has given no guarantees he will remain manager of Hibernian amid links of a switch to both Birmingham and Nottingham Forest.

The Hibs boss is the subject of speculation suggesting he will move to St Andrew's as new manager Chris Hughton's assistant after the duo had a successful spell at Newcastle and also spent time together at Tottenham.

Calderwood said: "I can't sit here and say categorically there's nothing that would excite me elsewhere. You must always be aware of other options and other chances. There's lots of personal things that do have an implication on any decision. But my job at the minute is to be here."

When asked on Thursday about his intentions regarding backroom staff, Hughton said: "That's another issue that certainly over the next few days I've got to speak to people about."

Hibs this week issued a statement after Calderwood was also linked with a switch to former club Forest as number two to Steve McClaren, saying no approach had been received and one would not be welcome. No approach has yet been received from Birmingham, either.

Meanwhile, Forest boss McClaren has told BBC Radio Nottingham: "Everyone knows we are trying to bring Colin Calderwood back to the club. We're still working on that. Hopefully that will be resolved but I think there is still a long way to go with that one."
