Birmingham chairman David Gold is determined that Robbie Savage
will be at St Andrew's next season.
The Welsh international continues to be linked with a move to
Everton, despite David Moyes telling evertonfc.com that there was
'no truth' in the reports.
Gold financed the deal that saw Savage make a £2.5 million
switch from Leicester last summer and he has been impressed with
his player's commitment and contribution.
But Gold does admits that if Birmingham were to receive a high
enough offer, he could be prepared to let Savage move away.
Gold said: "We don't want Robbie Savage to leave
Birmingham. He's a big favourite with the fans and I count
myself as one of them.
"He is such a bubbly character on and off the pitch and the
type of footballer the punters would want to be if they had the
chance to play for their favourite team.
"I want to see commitment from my midfielders and Robbie
has always given that from day one at Birmingham and throughout his
"I don't welcome any bid - but I accept things like
this go on in football. I am not going to stand here and say
there's no way we will ever sell Robbie because the fact is
every player has his price - like Damien Duff.
"Blackburn didn't want to sell him but you can get
pushed to a point where you feel you have no choice."
