Skysports.com understands a host of top clubs are keeping tabs on Birmingham's highly-rated defender Scott Dann.
Dann enjoyed an outstanding debut season at St Andrews last season and he has carried that form into the new campaign.
The former England Under 21 international has formed a formidable defensive partnership with Roger Johnson at Birmingham with the 23-year-old's classy style of play providing the perfect foil for tough-tackling Johnson.
Manchester United have been credited with an interest in the former Coventry star, but it is understood a number of other Premier League clubs are tracking the astute defender.
Birmingham are determined to keep hold of Dann with the Liverpool-born centre-half establishing himself as a key member of Alex McLeish's plans.
