Coventry have revealed they have rejected an approach from Championship rivals West Brom to speak to manager Micky Adams.
The Baggies are searching for a new boss after parting company with Bryan Robson last week and contacted City managing director Paul Fletcher asking permission to speak to Adams.
However, the board of directors at the Ricoh Arena have rebuffed the request.
An official statement released by Fletcher on the club`s official website read: 'Micky Adams is an important part of this club and we owe it to our fans and our players to keep him here.
'He is doing a magnificent job and at a time when we're looking to move forward, Micky is an integral part of our plans.'
