Birmingham retain interest in Charlie Adam
Birmingham boss Alex McLeish is expected to continue his pursuit of Blackpool skipper Charlie Adam.
City are understood to have had an initial offer, believed to be around £2 million, rejected for play-maker Adam.
Blackpool boss Ian Holloway has already indicated he would be surprised if any of his players wanted to leave this month unless one of the leading clubs expressed an interest.
But that will not stop McLeish maintaining his interest as he closes in on the loan signing David Bentley from Tottenham, subject to him completing a medical.
McLeish also remains optimistic Rangers striker Kenny Miller will move to St Andrew's despite reports that he has rejected the move.
The former Scotland boss said: "We are delighted David has chose us because there were half a dozen other clubs interested and he is a quality player.
"As for Kenny, he's not said yes or no. He's not knocked us back as some reports have suggested. Let's wait and see."
Meanwhile, Birmingham midfielder, Michel, is wanted by AEK Athens in a loan deal until the end of the season.
Michel has been unable to earn a first-team spot since his £3 million move from Sporting Gijon 12 months ago.
An indication of how far down the pecking order he has slipped was youngster Jordon Mutch playing ahead of him in Saturday's FA Cup tie with Millwall after returning from a loan spell at Watford.
