Nottingham Forest manager Billy Davies met chairman Nigel Doughty on Monday to discuss plans for next season.
Davies, who is entering the final year of his contract, has said he intends to honour his agreement.
But speculation has mounted that the Scot could leave following consecutive Championship play-off failures.
Davies joined as manager in January 2009, but despite two top-six finishes, his relationship with the board has often seemed strained.
The club's much-discussed transfer acquisitions committee has previously led to Davies expressing his frustration at the lack of signings.
And although Doughty recently described the former Derby County and Preston boss as a winner, Davies' future was likely to have been on the agenda at Monday's meeting.
