The Birmingham Mail understands that Birmingham centre back Michael Morrison has not been the subject of a bid of any kind from Championship rivals Derby County. The Rams are managed by ex-Birmingham boss Gary Rowett, but so far hasn’t made any move for his ex-players.

29-year-old Morrison has became a key member of the defensive unit at Birmingham since joining permanently in 2015 following a successful loan spell from Charlton Athletic. Rowett is looking to add to his Derby roster this summer, but recently added a centre back in the form of Curtis Davies from Hull City.

At the time of writing, Rowett has made no move for any of his former players from his time at St Andrews. There were media reports that he did make an enquiry for Morrison, but this is believed to be well off the mark. Injury restricted him to just 32 appearances last season, meaning he was practically an ever-present in the team whenever fit, not matter who the manager was at Birmingham.

With Harry Redknapp at the helm now, he’ll be looking to build his team around the likes of Morrison. He was hugely appreciative of the fact he returned from a lengthy injury and ended the season in the team, despite not necessarily being 100%. He appeared in the crucial victories over Huddersfield Town and Bristol City. Rowett certainly surprised many with the signing of Davies from relegated Hull, but it would appear he won’t be surprising any one else any time soon with the signing of Morrison.
