Birmingham striker Phillips: Players want McLeish to pen deal

Birmingham City veteran Kevin Phillips says the players want manager Alex McLeish to sign his new deal.

McLeish says he's close to putting pen to paper.

He said: "That's a board situation, but from a player point of view, I know that every player at the club wants the manager to stay.

"He is a fantastic manager and he has worked miracles here, getting us out of the Championship, helping us finish ninth in the Premier League in our first season.

"You look at the signings that have been made now as well - everything is in place."
