Blues retain Larsson hope

05 Sep 2008 - 11:40:50

Birmingham City are hoping Sebastian Larsson has a change of heart and puts pen to paper on a new five-year contract he originally rejected during the summer.

The Sweden international was heavily linked with a move away from St Andrew's after he turned down the new deal following the club's relegation from the Premier League.

But Blues co-owner David Gold has not given up hope of persuading the former Arsenal youngster to pledge his long-term future to the club.

"We offered Seb a new contract because of the high regard we all hold him in and certainly I would love him to sign it, we all would," he told the Birmingham Mail.

"I believe he can play for many, many years in the Premier League as a Birmingham City player, enjoying a very bright future here with us and (manager) Alex McLeish.

"He is a crowd favourite, a board favourite, Alex picks him as a regular. He is a very important player for this club."
