Bruce is set to be unveiled as Wigan´s new manager on Wednesday and he wants Black to eventually join him at the JJB Stadium, but the former Coventry boss will be in charge of Birmingham´s home game with Portsmouth on Saturday and Gold is keen to make sure he stays on a permanent basis.
Gold told PA Sport: "I believe Eric Black is special. I really admire him. His multi-lingual skills are so important in communicating with our foreign players and he has a great relationship with the squad. I will be doing everything to keep him at Birmingham. I want him to stay and will be fighting to stop him going to Wigan."
