David Moyes says Sunderland owner Ellis Short and the club's board want him to remain as manager despite relegation from the Premier League.
The former Manchester United boss saw his side relegated with four games to go last weekend and has since met with American businessman Short and Black Cats chief executive Martin Bain.
Although sections of the support turned vociferously against him, the Scot insists he has their full support to continue.
When asked if there had been a decision on his future at the club he said :
While clear that he retained a base of support in the boardroom, Moyes hinted he wanted to hear more about the club's ambitions for next season when the men reconvene at the end of the campaign.
Moyes was criticised for declaring he was in a survival battle upon his arrival at the Stadium of Light, potentially scaring off transfer targets or lowering expectations of those already at the club.
Reminded of that ahead of Saturday's trip to a Hull side who may yet join Sunderland in the Sky Bet Championship, the 54-year-old was unrepentant.
On the playing side, there is likely to be a significant turnover between now and next term.
Several out of contract players can expect to depart, while goalkeeper Jordan Pickford and top-scorer Jermain Defoe, who both harbour World Cup ambitions, will look for top-flight suitors.
