Stoke City are moving to beat West Bromwich Albion for Birmingham City defender Liam Ridgewell.

The Mirror says West Brom have made a new bid for Ridgewell to try to head off interest from Stoke.

Championship promotion chasers Birmingham have rejected two Albion bids for their versatile left-sided defender.

Potters boss Tony Pulis, who wanted Ridgewell in August following Blues' relegation from the top flight, may offer defender Danny Higginbotham in part-exchange to get his man.
