Birmingham City have a big task on their hands if they are going to prize Afriyie Acquah away from Torino, after their manager Sinisa Mihajlovic confirmed that he wanted to keep the player.

It was thought that Blues were close to sealing a club-record deal to bring Acquah to St. Andrew’s but the goalposts have now changed.

A bid from Blues has been knocked back and Mihajlovic has said: “I was opposed to his sale. The bid from Birmingham too low, he will stay with us.”

The news comes as a big blow to Harry Redknapp who is extremely keen to continue strengthening his squad ahead of Thursday’s transfer deadline.

Today’s 2-0 home defeat to Reading only reinforced what Redknapp already knew – he needs to bring more quality to the squad and he’ll be looking to do just that in the coming days.
