Birmingham co-owner David Sullivan insists the club are looking at appointing a high-profile replacement for Steve Bruce, despite being turned down by Martin Jol.

Sullivan, the Blues´ plc chairman, admitted the club have already approached the former Tottenham boss to replace Wigan-bound Bruce but said the Dutchman is unwilling to take another job so soon after leaving White Hart Lane.

Sullivan told The Guardian: "The usual suspects will be on everyone´s lips but this could be a fresh start for Birmingham City. We are looking at candidates of a certain level. It is a difficult one to try and get someone in who the dressing room will respect."
