Alex McLeish insists Birmingham will keep trying to "entice" in-form winger Sebastian Larsson to sign a new contract.

The Sweden international is in the final year of his current deal and negotiations over a new deal started more than a year ago but all attempts to persuade former Arsenal player Larsson to commit his future to Blues have so far drawn a blank.

McLeish said: "There is nothing doing at the moment with Seb's contract. We were hopeful we could get something done but it is up to Seb. He is now in a good position for himself if he wants to become a Bosman."

He added: "But we will keep trying to entice him."

Larsson has been back to his best in recent games with his pinpoint crosses, although no-one could take advantage during Saturday's goalless draw with Wigan at St Andrew's.

McLeish said: "I think he had a great game on Saturday. His delivery from the wide area was great.

"Seb doesn't have to beat a man. He can get the ball around an opponent with his terrific curl on the ball.

"We are just desperate for someone to get on the end of those quality crosses."
