Steve Bruce will be willing to hold talks with Wigan over their vacant managerial post if Birmingham give him permission, according to sources close to the former Manchester United skipper.

Bruce is remaining tight-lipped after Wigan approached Blues for permission to speak to him following the sacking of Chris Hutchings and the decision of Paul Jewell not to return to JJB Stadium.

"Steve has worked with Dave Whelan (Wigan owner) in the past and got on fine with him and the club even though it was for only around six weeks," a source close to Bruce said. "He has been trying for a new contract at Birmingham for six months and, if Birmingham give him permission, he would like to talk to Wigan."
