Harry Redknapp has agreed to become Birmingham City’s permanent manager. The 70 year-old is set to sign a one year rolling contract worth almostĀ  £3m a year.

After the formalities have been completed, the club are expected to make an official announcement in the next 48 hours.

Redknapp rescued Blues from relegation to League One with two wins from his three games in charge after taking over on an interim basis after Gianfranco Zola resigned on Easter Monday.

The owners, Trillion Trophy Asia, have given assurances that a significant transfer kitty will be made available and Redknapp will work closely with Ewan Chester, Head of Recruitment, to strengthen the squad.

Redknapp is confident that he can lead the club into the play-offs next term.

Steve Cotterill and Paul Groves, first team coaches, will also sign permanent deals at St. Andrews.
