Blues are looking to bring Lee Carsley back to the club as coach.
According to the Daily Mail, the former Blues man is the next in line, if a move for Kevin Bond doesn’t materialise.
Carsley, who managed Manchester City’s U18’s last season, is also being targeted by Nottingham Forest.
The 43-year-old spent 2 years at St Andrews and is keen to get back into football quickly.
This news comes after Harry Redknapp told TALKSport last month Bond would be joining his backroom staff:
“Kevin Bond is coming with me. Kevin was with me at Portsmouth when we got promoted, Tottenham… he’s been everywhere with me.
“He’s been out managing a team in Hong Kong doing a fantastic job out there – he’s won both the cups – and he’s come back and I’m delighted to have him with me. I think he’s brilliant.”
The move for Bond is yet to be announced by the club.
