Palacios staying with Birmingham

Wilson Palacios will stay with Birmingham City despite his younger brother being kidnapped back home in Honduras.

Midfielder Palacios, 23, on loan from Honduran club Olimpia with a view to a permanent deal, has made six appearances for Brum following a trial at Arsenal in the summer.

But his hopes of making it in the Premier League have been thrown into turmoil by news 15-year-old Edwin has been snatched by criminals seeking cash.

A Birmingham statement said: "The matter is being dealt with capably by police and so Wilson is staying in the UK."
