Gary Rowett responds when asked whether there will be any more departures from Birmingham City

Birmingham City FC - St. Andrews

Birmingham City winger David Cotterill has been linked with Brighton & Hove Albion.

Gary Rowett insists that there are no plans for further players to leave Birmingham City in January, following Demarai Gray’s move to Leicester City.

Gray made the switch to the King Power Stadium soon after the latest transfer window opened, but Birmingham seemingly want to keep the rest of their squad together.

The Blues are currently competing for a play-off spot in the Championship, and Rowett is determined to keep hold of the rest of his key players for the vital months ahead.

One player who has been widely tipped to leave Birmingham is David Cotterill, with Brighton & Hove Albion said to be interested by the Daily Mail.

However, it seems that the Welsh international will be remaining at St. Andrews, with Birmingham set to reject all offers.

Indeed Rowett is said to be looking to strengthen his squad over the remainder of the transfer window, with arrivals more likely than departures.

Birmingham are currently in eighth place in the Championship table, with their next match coming against Nottingham Forest on Tuesday.
