Slaven Bilic is ready to reject overtures from the Premier League to stay on as Croatia coach.

The former West Ham and Everton defender has been strongly linked with a move to England in the past with some clubs thought to be monitoring Bilic's situation now Croatia have failed to qualify for next summer's World Cup finals.

However, Bilic insists he will not quit his country and has indicated he is prepared to sign a new deal to lead Croatia for qualifying for Euro 2012.

"The Croatian FA, players and people want me to stay. I won't be resigning and I'm eager to carry on the work," said Bilic.

"Only small changes are required for the Euro 2012 campaign."
