It looks like Birmingham City won`t be appointing Ricky Sbragia as the new assistant to Alex McLeish.

Talks have been held between the club and Sbragia, but the ex- Birmingham and Walsall man has decided to stay at Sunderland as chief scout.

The news now leaves McLeish with little time to find a replacement for Roy Aitken, something he was hoping to have completed before the squad flew out to China on Wednesday.
