Birmingham City are refusing to sell goalkeeper Ben Foster to West Bromwich Albion.

The Mirror says the Baggies are desperate to buy Foster in the summer - as sporting director Dan Ashworth has informed their midlands neighbours.

But Championship play-off hopefuls Birmingham are refusing point blank to sell to their neighbours.

Birmingham have told Albion that if Foster does go, they will only sell to a bigger club than West Brom, with more ambition and money.
