If true, that would be one hell of a statement by the Pozzo family and one hell of a poke in the eye for Birmingham fans. The mooted price, a mere £2m, seems ridiculous for a player linked with Premiership clubs over the summer and carrying, at that point, a tag of £6m.
We know times are desperate at Birmingham but surely not THAT desperate? At this rate, poor Lee Clark will be lucky if he can name a team after the January window closes.
What the hell is going on in England's second city? Villa are sinking faster than a flushed turd, Birmingham aren't far off shutting up shop for good, and Wolves are looking more like Chihuahuas.
They used to build cars in the Midlands; soon we will be saying they used to play football!
