Anyone Left Birmingham Recently?

Recommended Posts

Taken from Sky Sports:

 

Birmingham City have played down suggestions Olivier Tebily and Julian Gray refused to take part in the club's final Premiership game of the season at Bolton.

 

It had been reported the pair made themselves the pair made themselves unavailable for selection for Steve Bruce on Sunday, a game Blues lost 1-0 at The Reebok.

 

However, Birmingham have stated the reports are untrue, although they have confirmed they had a troublemaker in their midst who has now departed.

 

"Reports that Olivier Tebily and Julian Gray refused to take part in the club's final Premiership game at Bolton are completely false and inaccurate," read a statement on the club's official website.

 

"Without naming the individuals involved, the club can however confirm that the main instigator of any problems is no longer at Birmingham City football club."

 

Meanwhile, Blues are being linked with a £3 million move for Cardiff City hot-shot Cameron Jerome.

 

Bluebirds manager Dave Jones reportedly has to sell before freshening up his squad, and is considering selling the 18-goal striker to raise much-needed funds.

 

Bruce is on the look-out for striking reinforcements after the club opted against retaining high-earner Chris Sutton.

From the beeb:

 

Birmingham have released Jamie Clapham, Chris Sutton, Mario Melchiot, Nico Vaesen and Stan Lazaridis.

 

And Nicky Butt and Jiri Jarosik have also ended their respective loan deals

 

But the club rejects claims that it was Olivier Tebily and Julian Gray who refused to play in the final game of the season against Bolton on Sunday.

 

A club statement read: "Without naming the individuals involved, the main instigator of any problems is no longer at Birmingham City Football Club."

 

The statement added: "Reports suggesting that Olivier Tebily and Julian Gray refused to take part in the club's final Premiership game at Bolton are completely false and inaccurate."

 

Boss Steve Bruce has refused to name the players who effectively went on strike for the match, which ended in a 1-0 defeat at the Reebok.

 

But he admitted he was left in a state of disbelief at their actions.

 

Bruce told the Birmingham Mail: "Professional footballers who don't want to play - that's incredible

Melchiot was crap this season. Jarosik would be a decent signing though.

Aye, I'd take Jarosik if he was no more that 3 million.

I've always thought Melchiot was quite good, probably better than Carr. And he's available no a free, no ?
