Veteran Phillips has Birmingham future as impact substitute

Kevin Phillips will have a future at Birmingham City, regardless of whether Fabrizio Miccoli signs or not. Although Miccoli's likely arrival will lead to inevitable speculation a new contract offer remains on the table for Phillips, reports the Birmingham Mail.

Ultimately, it depends on what Phillips decides to do.

Blues boss Alex McLeish has earmarked a role for him as an impact substitute, like last season.

If Phillips wants more game-time, and to be a first choice, then he will reject Blues' contract and consider other options.
