Lee Clark: Birmingham boss not deterred by possible departures

Clark's men claimed a 2-1 win over Burnley on Saturday, with Marlon King grabbing a last-gasp winner and moving his side away from the drop zone.

King is one of a host of players linked with a move away from St Andrew's and the Blues boss is aware he may be bidding farewell to a number of players who featured in Saturday's win.

"We need to do something in terms of players outgoing to keep us going," said Clark.

"For a couple of days it will be a bit tough, but come Thursday night I will know what I am doing.

"The toughest thing for us at the moment is that I cannot go after the targets that I want. I can't make calls to players and their agents at this moment in time because I don't know what I have got to work with.

"This has been a massive learning curve for me. All the coaching courses I have been on could never teach me how to handle the situation.

"But I am enjoying it, I am at a massive football club and we want to get it back to where it belongs. I am proud to be the manager here.

"The chairman said no-one is for sale for everybody is available. We are not putting people out there with a for sale sign in front of them. It's frustrating."

England call-up for Clyne

he 'where does it end' argument is an absurd one and completely misses the point of the Rooney Rule, which applies to all minorities. It doesn't force any team to appoint anyone, it merely requires them to interview at least one minority candidate.

ou make a lot of good points, but I still find myself instinctively against anything that makes it easier for Paul Ince to get managerial roles
