Mooney plays waiting game
Birmingham City striker Tommy Mooney
Mooney has not put on the Blue jersey since August
Birmingham City's Tommy Mooney is content to see out the remaining 18 months of his 10,000 a week contract unless he receives a tempting offer.

The striker is currently on loan at Sheffield United and is no longer considered a part of Blues manager Steve Bruce's first team plans.

Despite scoring 15 goals in during last season's campaign which culminated in promotion to the Premiership, Mooney has not played for City since the opening day of the season.

Mooney fell out of favour after criticising the team's pre-season preparations on his own website in August and spent three months on loan to Stoke City.

"My Birmingham career is coming to a close and that's not an opinion anymore. That is fact. I am clearly not going to play for them again," said Mooney.

If something comes along that I like the sound of, then great - otherwise I will just see out my contract at Birmingham City

"I would be delighted if something could be worked out at Sheffield United but I am under contract at Birmingham City.

"The fact that I'm under contract makes it all the more difficult. If something comes along that I like the sound of, then great. I'll then think about - but otherwise I will just see out my contract at Birmingham City."

Mooney scored his first goal for the Blades at the weekend to help them reach the FA Cup quarter-finals via a 2-0 victory over Walsall.
