Birmingham are ready to take a hard line and demand their full 3.5million valuation of midfielder Robbie Savage is met before they consider letting
him leave St Andrews.
Blues have rejected a second offer from Blackburn for the 30-year-old Welsh international, who put in a written transfer request on Monday.
Rovers' initial bid of 2million spread over three years was described as "derisory" and the new offer is only "marginally improved", according to City
managing director Karren Brady, and has also been turned down.
Brady confirmed: "I have this morning received a marginally improved offer from Blackburn's managing director John Williams.
"It remains totally unacceptable to us and so therefore the player will not be moving to Blackburn."
Blackburn boss Mark Hughes appears to be closing in on the reported 3million capture of Birmingham midfielder Robbie Savage. Hughes said that Rovers
had made progress in their exhaustive and acrimonious dealings with the Blues. Savage - who will miss Saturday's trip to Charlton with a sore knee -
is adamant he wants to get away from St Andrew's despite recently signing a new four-year contract.
Blackburn Rovers have completed the capture of Robbie Savage from Birmingham City. The Wales international has joined the Ewood Park outfit on a
three-and-a-half year deal. Savage, who will be unveiled to the media on Friday, could make his Rovers debut against Bolton on Monday.
he had the chance to sign for everton, who if we are honest, should get into europe easy. and a team who look to be going places. blackburn, well. it
looks like a rebuilding process. i cant see it being about money.
to me, maybe hes closer to his family who he said family problems, i think its also a case of wanting to help blackburn improve. go to a team and dig
in to help
