Birmingham war chest has agents circling

Birmingham boss Alex McLeish has admitted that the Blues have been inundated by calls and DVDs from agents recommending their clients. Since Carson Yeung made his £40 million January transfer window pledge, Blues has become a favourite port of call.

"I would rather have not let people know the figures because the phone has been non-stop since then, as you can imagine," McLeish told the Birmingham Mail.

"And Sammy Yu has been bombarded as well by the scatter-gun approach, by hundreds of agents putting loads of names in front of him.

"I know a few and a few I wouldn't touch, but there's also some that are interesting but I have to also say if I've got a first choice of a player, then I will certainly be pointing Sammy in that direction.

"But," stressed McLeish, "the fact there is money to spend has got to be a plus. I have got to find the right players to come in and make us better."
