Birmingham City look set to keep hold of defender Ryan Shotton with Harry Redknapp unable to find a suitable replacement, according to reports.

Despite bringing in Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinson on Monday morning on a season long loan, Redknapp clearly still sees a future at the club for Shotton.

The former Stoke City man still has two years left to run on his current deal with Blues and Redknapp has always maintained that if he can’t find a replacement then Shotton will stay with the club.

Middlesbrough were believed that have agreed a £3 million deal for the defender but it now looks like Blues are set to disappoint their league counterparts.

This news comes on the same night that Blues take on Premier League side Bournemouth in the Carabao Cup at St.Andrew’s in a game where Shotton has been named in the starting line up.

With just over a week to go now until the transfer window slams shut, it will be interesting to see where Shotton ends up.
