Co-owner David Sullivan claims that Gianfranco Zola has 'indicated' he may resign as West Ham United manager at the end of the season.
The Italian's future at Upton Park has come under constant scrutiny following the arrival of Sullivan and fellow co-owner David Gold to the boardroom in January.
The Hammers have ended any lingering fears of relegation this season, but Sullivan has hinted that Zola's 18-month managerial reign could come to an end at the end of the campaign at the Italian's request.
"No decision has been made," Sullivan told the Daily Telegraph.
"He did indicate he might resign at the end of the season, but he might well have changed his mind.
"In interviews he has not committed his future to the club beyond the end of the season."
Sullivan's comments come just one day after he revealed that every member of the squad, apart from midfielder Scott Parker, was effectively up for sale ahead of a summer of sweeping change at the east London club.
