Steve Cotterill is set to become Birmingham City’s manager next season, providing the club are not relegated next weekend.

The story was first revealed in the Sunday People.

A managerial reshuffle would see Harry Redknapp move upstairs as Director of Football with Cotterill promoted to first team manager.

Vital Birmingham understands that the club will offer Redknapp the managers job but would consider the aforementioned arrangement should Redknapp wish to take on the Director of Football role.

Rob Widey’s view

Harry Redknapp has already endeared himself to Blues fans but it’s easy to forget that he’s 70 years old.

The club will face criticism for the move but, as we understand it, the club wish for Redknapp to remain as manager.

If ‘Arry doesn’t fancy the post, he’ll hand it over to Steve Cotterill.

Cotterill would be guided by Redknapp who would have a massive say in transfers and other club football affairs.

The only real change would be in the technical area and in title – Redknapp would still be heavily involved with Blues.

Saying that, should Blues survive next weekend, Redknapp may want to give the job a crack himself.

It’s not as clear cut as the Sunday People claim.
