Burrows Off To Brum As Transfer Fever Mounts

Stalwart left-back David Burrows is leaving Coventry City after accepting an offer form Birmingham City.

He will sign for the Blues next month when his contract with Gordon Strachan’s side ends.

Burrows, aged 31, had been offered a new deal, but wanted the promise of regular first team football.

He lost his place in the starting line-up last season when he was out with injury and has found it hard to get back in the side.

He was at Highfield Road for four years following his £1.1 million move from Everton.

Coventry chairman Bryan Richardson has said he will listen to offers for centre-back Gary Breen, but has dismissed talk of a £2 million move to Ipswich as undervalued.

The chairman is hoping to sign Don Hutchison from Everton and Niclas Alexandersson from relegated Sheffield Wednesday, but faces competition for both signatures.

Peter Reid is known to have been in the frame for Hutchison for a long time, while Alexandersson will attract a lot of interest despite Sweden’s failure at Euro 2000.
