Birmingham City have handed a new contract to defender Liam Ridgewell. Ridgewell, 25, has pledged his future to the St Andrew's club until 2013 after putting pen to paper on a fresh three-year deal. The centre-half joined the Blues from local rivals Aston Villa in August 2007 and has gone on to make 113 first-team appearances. Last season he turned out 37 times for Alex McLeish's side and scored four goals. Ridgewell is the second member of the Blues squad to sign a new deal this summer. Last week veteran goalkeeper Maik Taylor penned a one-year extension to remain at St Andrew's.
