Blues reject Upson bid

18 Jan 2007 - 13:38:17

Birmingham City have reportedly turned down a £4million approach from West Ham for central defender Matthew Upson.

Upson, 27, has 18 months left on his contract with the Championship leaders, but Blues boss Steve Bruce insists he is not looking to cash in on the former Arsenal and England centre-half.

Hammers manager Alan Curbishley is desperate to strengthen his struggling side and earlier in the day pulled off the capture of Tottenham centre-half Calum Davenport for an undisclosed fee.

But Upson, who moved to Birmingham for £1million in 2003, will not be following Davenport into Upton Park after the Blues rejected their advances.

Upson has made ten appearances for Birmingham this season since returning to first-team action in November, following seven months on the sidelines with a serious Achilles injury.
