Scott Dann believes veteran Birmingham midfielder Lee Bowyer can play at the top level for another couple of seasons.

Bowyer is 34 next week but continues to play a key part for Blues and followed his winner against Chelsea with a last-gasp equaliser against Manchester United on Tuesday evening.

Dann said: "Can he play for another couple of years? He is still very fit and still loves the game. He showed again against United that he still wants it. If he carries on putting in performances like that, then there is no reason why he can't carry on for a couple of years."

Bowyer is out of contract next summer and City boss Alex McLeish is reluctant to make any public comment on the former England player's long-term future.

"That sort of goal he scored against Manchester United is typical Lee Bowyer for you," Dann continued.

"He did it last season as well, scored some important goals, and was one of our top goalscorers.

"He earned us a lot of important points last season. That is what you get from him.

"He makes those good runs into the danger area and he has got a good goal tally.

"He has played at the top level all his career, he is still putting in performances like that, scoring big goals and getting points for us.

"He can still do it at the top level."
