Birmingham remain in McLeish talks as Liverpool hover

Birmingham City remain locked in contract negotiations with Alex McLeish.

McLeish's contract situation has become more acute for the Brum board with Liverpool now seeking a replacement for Rafa Benitez.

McLeish's contract with Birmingham City ends in the summer next year.

The Birmingham Mail says it's understood there is a willingness on both sides to get a deal done and there was no sense of panic from either party involved in the talks.
