Birmingham City star Jonathan Spector set to sign new deal

Birmingham City FC - St. Andrews

HITC Sport understands that Birmingham City defender Jonathan Spector is set to sign a new long-term deal at St Andrews.

HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club that Birmingham City defender Jonathan Spector has agreed to sign a new contract at the club.

Spector is one of four out-of-contract players at Birmingham to be offered fresh terms at the Championship club with Blues boss Gary Rowett keen to keep hold of the American international.

Rowett is a big fan of Spector, feeling his versatility in that he can play anywhere across the backline and in midfield makes him a valuable addition to his squad as he plans for next season.

A number of clubs in England and in Major League Soccer are thought to have made enquiries about Spector, but the 29-year-old is set to snub the interest to stay at Birmingham.

The former Manchester United youngster is expected to sign a two-year deal with the option of a further 12 months at Birmingham.

Spector has spent the last four seasons at Birmingham after joining the club from West Ham in the summer of 2011 and has made over 125 appearances for the club.
