Portsmouth's Traore wants Birmingham stay

Off contract from Portsmouth, Djimi Traore is desperate to sign a deal with Birmingham City.

"The discussions between my agent and the club are still going on and we are looking for the right deal," Traore told the Birmingham Mail.

"Yes I'm keen to sign, I've had a few offers but my main priority is just Birmingham.

''Of course, I enjoyed playing for the club last season and I said to my agent to do everything he can to make sure that I join Birmingham.

"Hopefully something will be completed over the next few weeks."

Discussions may be stalling over the former Liverpool player's wage demands as he was believed to be earning in the region of £20,000-a-week at Portsmouth.
