"About 10 years ago I said the club needed somebody else in my shoes to push it on," he told the Walsall Express and Star.
"People still latch on to that and say the club is for sale. But almost every club is for sale to the right person.
"I have repeatedly said if the right person comes along, someone who could ensure the club's future and that league football stays in Walsall, I would gladly move aside.
"But nobody has come forward and I would never leave unless somebody of that type comes along. Walsall is too close to me."
