A groin injury to Derby County`s Stephen Pearson looks like causing Blues to end their interest in signing the player.

The midfielder held talks with Birmingham last week and agreed personal terms and a fee of £575,000 was agreed, but Blues cooled their interest over the weekend because of a problem with his fitness.

The injury would have him out of Derby’s friendly at Burton last Wednesday before Birmingham came in for the player according to the Derbyshire Telegraph.
