Birmingham City have made a bid for Brentford defender Harlee Dean, according to HITC Sport.

It’s been no secret that Harry Redknapp is still looking to bolster his defensive options, particularly as a deal is in place for Ryan Shotton to depart to Middlesbrough.

Dean, 26, rejected the offer of a new deal at Brentford earlier in the summer and Blues have now tabled a £2m bid for him.

The centre back is vastly experienced having played over 200 games for the Bees and has played a key role in their rise to being an established Championship club.

He made 42 appearances last season, scoring three times.

Blues fans, would you welcome a move to bring Dean to St. Andrew’s and does this mean that a deal to sign Aden Flint is completely dead?

  • Really hope all this is nonsense. Shotton goes for £3m and replaced by a £2m player-surely not. If however it does materialise,then every blues fan wake up for goodness sake and accept we have no money except for half wages loan players and cheapies like Vassell and Ndoye. HR will have to explain a lot if no permanent players are bought for decent money that reflects quality from the insulting trumpet shouting from his Warchest.

  • Even if we spend £7m this transfer window its a lot more than we have been spending the last 5 years. Yes agree it is a pittance compared to the likes of Wolves but remember these owners are selling up within two years so wasn’t really expecting them to spend big on the playing staff.

  • Ijaz. We all can accept the fact that money is tight.What is annoying is the fact that Harry and co.have been conning us all into thinking that we can compete with others in this league to have a ‘real go’ this season with a lot of money to back up his statement.As a second issue Ijaz.as you know I believe TTA no longer own us and I have to be careful on this,but whoever does there is only one person who knows and his lips are tight.
