Birmingham have pledged to announce a successor to manager Steve Bruce "within the next week" following his departure to Wigan.

Scotland manager Alex McLeish is the favourite with the bookmakers although City sources are insisting no deal has been finalised.

City, in a media statement, said: "The Birmingham board has appointed just three managers in the past 14 and a half years. Each of those managers made improvements on their predecessor and took the club forward. The board will appoint a new manager within the next week and is looking forward to working with someone who can have an equally positive impact."
