Birmingham's Larsson alerts Premiership clubs with comments

Blackburn and Newcastle are rumoured to have shown an interest and Larsson hopes a deal can be reached before the close of transfer window.

"I want to play on the highest level," he told Sportbladet.

"I hope it will be resolved. There are three weeks left of the transfer window.

"I have got a new contract proposal from Birmingham, but I am not interested in that.

"I have got two years left on my current deal. I am not the kind of player who creates a lot of trouble.

"But somewhere there has to be some respect between the club and the player. Of course it would be better if I played in the Premier League."
