Birmingham goalkeeper Mail Taylor has insisted Matthew Upson "won´t throw his dummy out" if he fails to secure a move to West Ham before the January transfer window closes.

Upson has hit out at City for blocking his move to Upton Park after bids of £4 million and £6 million were rejected by the Coca-Cola Championship promotion-chasers.

Taylor told PA Sport: "Probably not many players would be able to shut out the disappointment (of not moving) but Matt is the ultimate professional."
