Birmingham are to hold talks with striker Mikael Forssell over his future at St Andrews.

The Finland international is out of contract at the end of next month, but he is one of City´s biggest earners and co-owner David Sullivan has admitted the club may struggle to afford to keep players out of contract now the club has been relegated from the Barclays Premier League.

Sullivan made no specific reference to Forssell, but said: "We have got players whose contracts are up that we cannot afford to renew with the wages they are on and they may decide to leave."
