NO WAY ARE KIDS LEE-VING BLUES
LEE CLARK says he has no intention of allowing Birmingham’s talented youngsters to leave.
Teenage prodigy Demarai Gray was the subject of a £500,000 bid from Crystal Palace on deadline day.
“How important is it that we fend off these clubs? Imperative,” Clark said.“We’ve lost too many good players I didn’t want to in my first couple of years here.
“I had a good conversation with Demarai and his mum because I felt it was necessary after turning down the move on deadline day. It was to explain how I see his future.
“Him hopefully one day getting back to the Premier League with Birmingham City, as a local boy, is the ideal scenario.”
