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

Doyle Told He Will Stay At St Andrews

Birmingham manager Alex McLeish will not be letting third choice goalkeeper Colin Doyle go out on loan this season.

Doyle wants first team football and has been hoping that the Blues boss would let him go out on loan to gain valuable first team experience, but McLeish wants him at St Andrews as back up.

Ipswich have shown an interest in the past of obtaining the stopper`s services, so have Scottish clubs Motherwell and Dundee United, that makes no difference to McLeish.

Speaking to the Birmingham Mail the boss said: 'He is our third-choice goalkeeper, he's cover.

'We need to have three good goalkeepers, Doyley's had a fair bit of experience without being given the total amount of experience of the other two. But he's still had a fair amount of experience so we know that we've got a terrific third goalie there.

'It must be frustrating for him but he's a great type, he trains hard with (goalkeeping coach) Dave Watson and he knows that happens in football sometimes.

'You might not be first choice but you're part of the squad and you're getting paid good wages, then you have to give it as much as you can professionally.'
