Manchester City have first option on Birmingham City winger Nathan Redmond.

The Daily Mail says Redmond is set to stay at the Championship club until the end of the season despite their financial troubles.

Manchester City have first refusal on the highly-rated 18-year-old winger but are in no rush to make an offer.

The Premier League champions agreed the deal when Joe Hart was loaned to St Andrew's for the 2009-10 season.
