Birmingham boss Eck reveals Ipswich approach for Carsley

Birmingham City boss Alex McLeish admits he's turned down an approach from Ipswich for Lee Carsley.

McLeish insists he wants to keep Carsley and fellow veteran Kevin Phillips to the end of the season.

He told bcfc.com: "Roy Keane did express an interest earlier in the season (with Carsley) but it wasn't right for me to let Cars go even if I wanted to.

"But if the players were to say to me 'I've got a really good opportunity, what do you think?', because they're not getting regular football here I'd have to think about that."
