New Birmingham manager Alex McLeish is attempting to keep on-loan Arsenal central defender Johan Djourou for the remainder of the season.

Djourou initially joined Blues in the summer with a view to him returning to the Gunners in January as Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger wanted to keep his options open with Djourou, with Kolo Toure due to be on African Nations Cup duty.

McLeish told PA Sport: "Will I try and keep Djourou for the season? I would think that would be a target we would try and achieve."
