Birmingham Bid Knocked Back

Birmingham Bid Knocked Back

Harry Redknapp, never backwards in coming talking when it comes to talking about other clubs' players, mentioned Jordan Hugill by name earlier in the summer saying 'I like him.'

Birmingham interest in Hugill has seen them make an offer for the forward, according to the Lancashire Evening Post.

Hugill, who saw Preston turn down multiple bids from Ipswich in January, have knocked back fellow Championship rivals Birmingham's offer, which the Post is reporting as being around the £2.5m mark.

Redknapp, quoted by the Lancashire Evening Post, said: 'I like him. He`s quick, strong, powerful, raw, a handful. He`s a good player but he belongs to Preston.'

Neil wouldn't comment on the rumours after the victory at Morecombe on Tuesday, which saw Hugill play the opening hour at the Globe Arena.

He said: 'Once anything happens in terms of decision making, then you will find out.'

The Preston forward does have another two years on his contract with the club also holding the option of a further year.

Any exit, to St Andrew's or elsewhere, would involve former club Port Vale receiving a sell-on clause as per the agreement when Hugill, 25, arrived from Vale Park in 2014.
