Birmingham City manager Harry Redknapp has confirmed to the Birmingham Mail that he has been offered a couple of defenders from foreign leagues.

Speaking at his pre-Bristol City press conference, Redknapp gave an update on the Ryan Shotton situation as well as what his plans are for before the deal is complete.

The 70-year-old confirmed that the club have reach an agreement with big spending Championship side Middlesbrough for the sale of Shotton but he doesn’t want to let him go before he has reinforcements in the building.

Speaking to the Mail, Redknapp said: ‘We agreed a deal with Middlesbrough for Ryan. But we can`t let him go really without getting replacements in – that`s the problem, we have got to get some replacements.

‘There are a couple of centre halves I have been offered and have had good reports on from foreign clubs, so we are looking at them as well.

“We are having a look round to see what comes up. But until we get someone else in I can`t really let him go.”

Blues fans, do you think the club should stump up the money that Bristol City want for Aden Flint, the defender who is believed to be Harry Redknapp’s number one target? Let us know in the comment section down below!
