West Brom boss Hodgson still hopes to land Birmingham's Ridgewell

West Bromwich Albion boss Roy Hodgson remains hopeful of landing Birmingham City defender Liam Ridgewell.

Albion's initial bid was rejected by their midlands rivals.

He said: "I know that Birmingham are still in dialogue with Dan Ashworth [West Brom's sporting and technical director]. Whether that means there will be another offer from our side I couldn't say.

"I was under the impression that the offer we made was pretty much a final one, but who knows? It would be nice for a deal to be done and, if it can't, then that is okay too."
