Birmingham City have been struggling in the Championship this season and it appears there has been talk of a possible managerial change at St. Andrews once again.

Steve Cotterill has been in charge of the Blues since September 2017 following the sacking of Harry Redknapp, and has overseen 23 matches at the helm.

In those 23, he has only seen his side win seven times, with a further five draws, however, he has had 11 defeats in that time, leaving his side facing a real possibility of relegation to League One.

Birmingham City were on the wrong end of a 2-0 defeat to Aston Villa last weekend in the Second City Derby and pressure is continuing to mount on the current boss.

Bookmakers are already advertising markets for people to bet on the next permanent manager of the St. Andrews outfit, however, Paddy Power appear to have Cotterill favourite to remain at the club beyond the end of the season.

There have been a host of names that have been linked as a possible replacement, however, some of those appear to be unlikely candidates at the present moment.

Aitor Karanka is considered to be a strong consideration for the role, although he has only recently become the manager of Championship rivals Nottingham Forest.

Nigel Pearson, Lee Carsley and Nigel Adkins round up the top five, although it would appear to be unlikely any of those are in charge of the Blues in the near future.
