'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Swedish midfielder looking for Premiership move

Newcastle United-target Sebastien Larsson has been quoted as saying that he will look to exit the club come the summer if Birmingham fail to win promotion to the Barclays English Premier League.

'It's obvious I will want to leave (if Blues aren't promoted). It's obvious that you don't want to play a second consecutive year in the Championship.'

The player's ambition has since then received support from Birmingham boss Alex McLeish, but with fans angered by the Swede's comments, he has come out and said that he may have been misquoted.

'I don't know what has been said over here apart from probably not exactly what I said to the Swedish newspaper, which happens quite often,' the 23-year-old midfielder told the Birmingham Mail.

'I suppose from the little things I've heard it sounds a bit misconstrued and it's not exactly the words I said.

'This stuff happens, it's nothing to worry about, I'm totally committed to the club and doing everything I can to get my form back to my best and help us out.'

The statements though indicative does not quite quash the previous statement the player made, so, a signal of intent to move away can still be felt.

The Magpies made a quite public pursuit of the player last summer, but were told he was not for sale by the higher-ups at Birmingham City. However, if the speculation surrounding former Blues boss Steve Bruce joining the Toon as manager does indeed materialise, expect another bid for Larsson in the summer.
