Birmingham signing Phillips in new West Brom taunt

New Birmingham signing Kevin Phillips has taunted West Brom by declaring they'll struggle to replace him.

"At the end of the day I have to emphasise it wasn't about wages it was just about the length of the contract, I was looking for a bit of security at this time of my career," said Phillips.

"I suppose when I look at it - and I don't want to talk myself up unnecessarily - but if they're going to replace a goalscorer, they cost a fortune nowadays.

"It could have got sorted, but that's their decision. It's done and dusted now. I'm a Birmingham player now and I'm delighted to be."

He added: "I could easily come in and slaughter them. All I will say is the manager and chairman have gone on about how highly I'm valued at the club, but obviously I'm not that highly valued in the terms and length of contract that they offered me."
