As Blues continue to search for the new man to take-over the manager`s job from Chris Hughton there are reports of a shortlist that no longer contains the name Alan Curbishley.

The former Charlton and West Ham manager was a player at St Andrews in the 80`s and he was one of the men that City wanted to take over at the club, but the Birmingham Mail reports that he is no longer in the running after meeting with the club.

This leaves Lee Clark as far and away the favourite to take the manager`s seat after he showed what he could do with Huddersfield, steering them to a 43 game unbeaten run.

The paper also reports that Phil Brown and Roy Keane are outsiders for the job.
