Portsmouth boss Redknapp: Cole can join Birmingham

Redknapp said: “I should imagine if Birmingham go up he will want to stay with them. If he wants to come back, that’s fine. He’s got another year left with us.

“He’s a good player. But he wants to play all the time, and I understand where he’s coming from. But I’ve not heard anything from anyone.

“We’ll get the season out of the way and see what happens.”
