BIRMINGHAM City boss Alex McLeish is ready to commit his future to the Blues after holding preliminary talks over a new contract.

Chief executive Michael Dunford and vice chairman Peter Pannu spoke with the former Scotland boss about a new deal and club owner Carson Yeung is now set to join the negotiations.

“We had a chat, myself, Michael and Peter. We didn't talk about specific figures, but things in general, and it was a very good meeting.

“I'm now due to see Carson and, absolutely, I plan on staying at Birmingham.

“I see my future here and I'm sure we can work something out.”
