Birmingham boss McLeish plans Nafti talks

Birmingham City boss Alex McLeish is planning crunch talks with midfielder Mehdi Nafti.

Nafti, currently in action for Tunisia, has been in impressive form for Blues this season and formed an impressive partnership with Fabrice Muamba.

His current deal with the club expires in the summer although City can take up an additional 12-month option on his services.

McLeish said: "We told him before he went to the African Nations Cup that we would speak to him when he came back.

"We have an option on him, so he's got a year and a bit left, and we can have a chat about where we see things going forward in the coming weeks."
