Jason Lowe hopes to quit Birmingham City and return to Blackburn Rovers - five months after joining the Blues, according to the Sun's printed edition on Monday [page 55].

The report claims Lowe is in talks to cancel the one-year contract he signed last August, shortly after leaving Blackburn at the end of his contract.

Lowe was thrown straight into Harry Redknapp's Birmingham team, but has failed to add to his three Blues appearances since the former Tottenham Hotspur manager was sacked in mid-September.
