Peter Pannu has made moves to make it public that Jack Butland and Nathan Redmond will not be leaving the club.
Now if I was a cynical person, I would say ‘that`s them gone then`, but I`m not like that. Although if a stupid amount of money was offered then Blues would be all ears and you can`t blame them for that.
The newspapers had it that the Hammers were to come knocking in an attempt to get their hands on Redmond, but the chances of them doing that with a million pound bid is very unlikely.
Redmond is highly thought of at St Andrews after getting his big chance with the club last season in the Europa League.
Pannu told the club`s official website: ‘I’d like to make it clear that Jack Butland and Nathan Redmond are not for sale unless we are subject to an eye-popping offer.
‘Our supporters should be reassured that the club will not accept any derisory financial offers for any of our key players, as has been suggested, but equally we are required to make sound and balanced financial decisions which we accept are not always going to be popular. After all, this is a business.
‘I am sure no one wants the club to go into administration, particularly when my remit is for the club to be self sufficient.’
