Birmingham manager Alex McLeish starts contract talks

Birmingham manager Alex McLeish has started talks over a new contract.
The 51-year-old, who joined Blues in November 2007, started negotiations after meeting the club's owner Carson Yeung and vice-chairman Peter Pannu.
"They gave me some initial figures. I will get my advisers to meet them and let them thrash it out," said McLeish, whose deal ends in the summer of 2011.
After returning to the top flight in his first full season, McLeish's side are now eighth in the Premier League.
Birmingham also reached the quarter-finals of the FA Cup before being knocked out by Portsmouth earlier this month. If McLeish extends his stay he may be given the chance to strengthen a squad that has performed beyond expectations.
