Harry Redknapp will ‘more than likely’ become Blues’ permanent manager if he keeps the club in the Championship this season.

Redknapp was confirmed as Gianfranco Zola’s successor on Tuesday on a three game non-contract basis. But Vital Birmingham understands that a contract has been discussed between the club and Redknapp and the manager has given a ‘gentlemans agreement’ that he will remain at St. Andrews as long as Blues are playing in the second tier.

Personal terms will have to be agreed and any deal is far from a formality, yet ‘Arry has told the club of his desire to take the challenge on full time – but is reluctant to commit until safety is achieved.

Redknapp is not currently on a salary at Blues but will pocket £250,000 if he keeps Blues up – the equivalent of £83,000 a game. And considering the situation he’s inherited from his predecessor, that figure would have been well earned.

The 70 year-old has been assured that there will be financial backing throughout the summer as the club look to mount a promotion push.

If Blues do drop into League One, it’s thought that Redknapp and the club would part company.

  • Well things ant going our way Nottingham Forest 3 – 0 Reading Wolves 0 – 0 Blackburn Rovers We now need wolves to win that game. With Forest wining. We must beat the villa if not. A draw will not be good enough. one thing that mite help us is Huddersfield have broke down today they look rubbish at Fulham. Huddersfield Town 1 – 4 Fulham. so that could help us when we play them. Bristol City 1 – 1 Barnsley we could do with Barnsley winning that. lets hope we beat the Villa come on Blues KRO.

  • Wolverhampton Wanderers 0 – 0 Blackburn Rovers Wigan Athletic 0 – 0 Cardiff City Rotherham United
    1 – 0Ipswich Town Nottingham Forest 3 – 2 Reading Burton Albion 2 – 1Leeds United Its safe to say the results have not dune us any favours today. We are now just 2 points off the drop. We must beat the Villa. Come on you blues.

  • Blues need something to play for …Harry’s comment that he will most likely stay at blues if they stay up is as good as is needed … We have a dream …KRO ….

  • Just need to match Blackburns results for the remaining two games. I think they will draw both.
