Blues to sound out Hughton

FORMER Ireland international Chris Hughton is eyeing a return to management with Birmingham City.

The ex-Newcastle United boss has been out of the game since his shock sacking by the Magpies last season but Birmingham are poised to move for Hughton if Alex McLeish's departure is confirmed.

McLeish resigned as Birmingham boss by email on Sunday and he's expected to take over at Aston Villa, but Birmingham have refused to accept his resignation and will demand compensation of £5million if Villa want him as their new manager.
