McLeish has assurances for fans

McLeish can point to the fact that he has done good business by bringing in Lee Carsley and Kevin Phillips on free transfers to back him up.

But nine have gone, including Mikael Forssell and Fabrice Muamba, and if the rumours are to be believed then James Fadden, Sabastian Larsson and Oliver Kapo could be heading for the exit.

"I would say to our supporters that whoever we have lost, we have tried to replace with quality," McLeish told the Birmingham Mail.

"I would also tell them that if anyone else goes, again it would be our intention to replace with quality.

"I am not saying people are definitely going to go.

What I am saying is that we want to start the new season with a better team than finished the last season, that last game against Blackburn Rovers. It`s my job as manager to do that, with the help of the board."
