Birmingham manager Alex McLeish has held talks with Medhi Nafti over his future - and confirmed the midfielder will return to the side for Saturday´s Barclays Premier League clash with Everton.

The Blues boss played down speculation linking the Tunisia international, whose current deal expires in the summer, with a move away from St Andrews.

McLeish said: "It´s the silly season for those type of comments (over Nafti´s future). Maybe some people are trying to unsettle others but we have an option on Mehdi. I´ve had pretty positive talks with Mehdi, so that kind of talk in the media doesn´t bother me."
