Curtis Davies: Birmingham have rejected bids from Wolves for Curtis Davies and M

The cash-strapped Championship club are willing to listen to offers for any of their players due to their ongoing financial concerns.

City have also said they have not received any bids for England U21 international goalkeeper Jack Butland, who has been linked with Newcastle, Liverpool and Chelsea.

Butland has intimated he has no interest in talking to Chelsea because he wants first team football - something he does not feel he would get at Stamford Bridge.

Speaking earlier, Birmingham boss Lee Clark said: "The only official bid the club have had for Jack is the one that was turned down in the summer from Southampton, just as I was taking the job.

"That's not to say we haven't had lots of interest in Jack and people asking the question.

"But, in terms of somebody actually putting down that they want to take him and what they're willing to pay, that hasn't materialised.

"With my football manager's head on, I don't want that to happen. But, in terms of the future of the club, it's been talked about already by the chairman that it probably needs to happen."

Birmingham have also knocked back a second bid from Nottingham Forest - believed to be around £500,000 for Chris Burke; Forest boss Alex Mcleish gave Burke his debut when they were both at Rangers in 2002.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
