Birmingham won't sell top kids as Liverpool, Man City circle

Birmingham City boss Chris Hughton insists he won't sell their top kids.

Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool are all circling St Andrew's for their best young players.

Jordan Mutch is the oldest and most prominent of three youngsters to come through the Blues Academy in recent years.

Nathan Redmond and Jack Butland are the other two that are close to pushing for a first-team spot.

"There are no plans (to cash in on the youngsters)" Hughton told the Sunday Mercury.

"We will approach the January window the same as every other club in this division. We are thinking more about the possibility of bringing in one or two.

"Jordon, Jack and Nathan are three good players that I would like to think have got a bright future here at this football club.

"It's always about the right time to introduce them, how fast and how quickly to push them forward.

"But they are three players committed to the club, enjoy being here and I see them as the future."
