Birmingham City manager Harry Redknapp has confirmed that the club have submitted a second transfer offer for towering Bristol City centre-back Aden Flint according to the Bristol Post.

The 28-year-old Pinxton born defender is believed to be valued at around £10 million by The Robins after making 201 appearances for the club, scoring 29 goals.

It has previously been reported that Sky Bet Championship pair Birmingham City and Leeds United have enquired about the availability of Flint with the former seeing an initial transfer offer for the player rejected by Bristol City.

The Robins had admitted that Birmingham City’s transfer offer had made an impression upon Flint and it has now been revealed that the Blues have returned with a second transfer bid for the player, although the sum offered is again likely to fall well short of the defender’s monstrous price tag.

Flint started his career in non-league football with Alfreton Town before signing for Swindon Town in January 2010. The player helped the Wiltshire club to promotion to Sky Bet League One in 2011/2012 and was regularly named in the Sky Bet League Two Team of the Week during that season.

In June 2013, Flint joined current club Bristol City in a reported £300,000 deal. The player has become a huge success story at Ashton Gate with the defender winning a Sky Bet League One and Football League Trophy  double in 2014/2015 while he is a huge Robins fans’ favourite.
