Midweek Sport - - ON THE NOSE -

BLACK­POOL mid­fielder Barry Fer­gu­son will only be al­lowed to join Birm­ing­ham on loan if his for­mer club match his wages.

The for­mer Scot­land mid­fielder, 34, is set to leave Bloom­field Road this week af­ter grow­ing frus­trated at his lack of first-team football, with Mid­dles­brough also in the hunt.

But Seasiders boss Ian Hol­loway said: “We paid Birm­ing­ham £750,000 for Barry, so if they want him on loan our chair­man thinks they should take up his wages rather than do a player swap.”
