McLeish: Confident over pair
Birmingham boss Alex McLeish is confident Liam Ridgewell and Sebastian Larsson will sign new deals at the club.
The duo's current contracts expire in the summer, fuelling talk they could leave St Andrews at the end of the season.
Contract talks are reported to have stalled as the pair look to get their long-term futures resolved.
However, McLeish expects everything to get sorted out to keep the pair at the club.
"We were quite close on Liam and Seb a couple of weeks ago," McLeish told the Daily Mirror.
"I'm sure the guys will get a fair offer each, certainly money I could only have dreamed of when I was a player.
"I got my fiver rise at Aberdeen and Sir Alex Ferguson said to me, 'you're bleeding the club dry'."
