Former Aston Villa boss Brian Little can still see the club seeking offers for their 'Bomb Squad'.
Darren Bent, Alan Hutton, Charles Nâ€™Zogbia and Shay Given all made their first appearances for more than a year in Thursday nightâ€™s friendly victory at Mansfield.
â€śI think personal pride would see people want to do well,â€ť Little told the Birmingham Mail.
â€śPeople have bad spells. Iâ€™m not sure how those players will react. I still think that they would be available.
â€śIâ€™m quite sure that at this moment in time if clubs wanted them then they would be available.â€ť
