A £16million bid made by Stoke City for Scott Dann and Cameron Jerome has been rejected by Birmingham City this afternoon.
A report on Skysports.com say that the bid placed was more or less immediately thrown out by Blues which will test just how much Stoke want the pair.
It`s a good decision from Birmingham as they can get a big offer just for Dann from one of the bigger clubs who are after his services and it will also give the player a chance to sign for a decent footballing club instead of Stoke.
Arsenal, Liverpool and Aston Villa are all said to be looking to sign Dann up and that could start off quite a bidding war, leaving Stoke as mere watchers of what`s going on.
As far as Jerome goes, they can have him for silly money if they want to pay it.
