Birmingham looking to keep quartet

Birmingham are hoping to keep hold of young Josh Andrews, Rico Patterson, Callum Sullivan and Josh Williams and have offered all of them new deals to stay on professional terms. The Blues published their retained list on Monday following the end of the Championship side.

They have decided that Maxime Colin, Harlee Dean, Troy Deeney, George Friend, Jordan Graham and Kevin Long will be leaving the club. Krystian Bielik, Hannibal, Reda Khadra, Dion Sanderson, Auston Trusty have all returned to their parent clubs with it yet to be known if any will return to the Midlands this summer.

West Brom man returns

Wigan Athletic have announced on their retained list that Martin Kelly has returned to West Brom following the expiration of his loan deal the DW Stadium. The experienced centre-back was given the green light to join the Latics on a temporary basis during the January transfer window to get some more game time under his belt.

He played just once for the Latics though before injury struck as he watched on as Shaun Maloney’s side were relegated to League One after finishing bottom of the table on 39 points behind Reading and Blackpool. The 33-year-old, who has made 225 appearances in his career to date in all competitions having previously played for the likes of Liverpool, Huddersfield Town and Crystal Palace, remains under contract at the Hawthorns for another 12 months.
