Bruce was wanted by the struggling Premier League side as a possible replacement for Sammy Lee who left the Reebock Stadium by mutual consent on Wednesday.

A statement on the official Blues website has confirmed that the board of directors had denied Bolton the chance to speak to Bruce whilst the Blues boss himself told Sky Sports News: "It's flattering."

"My first reaction was that they've seen the type of job I've done and would like permission to speak to me.

"That hasn't been granted so I'll accept that."
