Birmingham have revealed they could sell David Dunn in the January transfer window.
Dunn's future at St Andrews has been the subject of intense speculation in recent weeks with his current contract expiring at the end of the season.
The former England Under-21 international has been linked with the move back to former club Blackburn with Mark Hughes confirming his interest in the midfielder.
Birmingham boss Steve Bruce vowed not to let Dunn leave on the cheap with Dunn admitting he would be keen a possible move.
Birmingham have now moved to clarify Dunn's situation and they have confirmed they could be prepared to sell the player next month.
"Birmingham would like to clarify the situation regarding midfielder David Dunn," read a club statement.
"David Dunn is fit and has been so for a couple of weeks.
"However following the player's recent comments indicating that he would consider a move back to the north west to be closer to his daughter and his family, the club admits that this could potentially be an attractive option for all concerned parties if the situation arose."
