Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore has scotched reports suggesting that foreign owners want to scrap promotion and relegation.
League Managers Association chief Richard Bevan had earlier claimed that a number of foreign owners were in support of Premier League reforms, but Scudamore strongly refuted those claims.
"There is not a club that is interested in the notion of no relegation," he said. "The whole point is we are a sporting competition.
"I have an open dialogue with all of [the owners] and I am probably in the best position of anybody to understand where the clubs are at and what the mood is and there is not one of them is contemplating that [proposal]."
In a survey of Premier League owners, nine have said that they are against reforms, while the other 11 clubs have either declined to comment or have not yet responded.
