Birmingham City boss Chris Hughton is urging Nathan Redmond to resist interest from Liverpool and Manchester City.

Hughton can understand someone of Redmond's talent attracting attention but believes he is best served learning his trade at Birmingham.

He said: "With a young player like Nathan, there is always speculation.

"He's a young talent and he would be no different to any young talent at any club.

"His name is going to get mentioned and he is developing well here. In the games he's played, you can see what he is.

"He is a 17-year-old player that is still developing his game with the good and bad.

"There were periods against Wolves when he was up against good Premier League players when he couldn't get his own way.

"That's what will happen with him. His best place to continue developing is here."
