Birmingham warn Wigan off Larsson

Birmingham City boss Alex McLeish insists midfielder Sebastian Larsson is not for sale.

Wigan and West Brom are chasing the Swede, but Eck says: "I'll need to make a sacrifice somewhere along the line if I'm going to create my own team.

"Team building doesn't happen overnight. It takes a bit of time and not only the playing staff but also the support staff as well.

"I've not heard anything from any of the guys as regards leaving the club but somewhere along the line we will make that sacrifice - but only if the deal suits us and allows us to go forward.

"But I'd like to keep Seb (Larsson), of course. He was tremendous for us after I came here."
