Birmingham not for selling star players

Birmingham City acting chairman Peter Pannu has assured Blues fans that only ridiculous offers would be considered for young stars Jack Butland and Nathan Redmond. "Our supporters should be reassured that the club will not accept derisory offers for any of our key players, as has been suggested," said Pannu.

"Jack Butland and Nathan Redmond are not for sale unless we are subject to an eye-popping offer."

Coming four days on from the sale of midfielder Jordon Mutch to Cardiff City, he told the club website: "We are required to make sound and balanced financial decisions which we accept are not always going to be popular. After all, this is a business.

"Jordon Mutch's deep desire to move to Cardiff and be reunited with Malky Mackay was granted.

"At the same time, the deal was deemed a very good one for the club with a substantial up-front payment and a heavy sell-on clause.

"While the decision to sell Mutch was not taken lightly, it was felt replacements could be sought for the midfielder but our intention is to keep hold of other talented gems we have."
