Birmingham City vice-chairman Peter Pannu has revealed that the club has been successful in getting Manchester City to let keeper Joe Hart stay on loan for another season.
There is no secret that Blues are interested in signing Hart on a permanent deal, but that looks very unlikely to happen.
Hart`s performances for Birmingham this season has prompted talk of a call-up to the England World Cup squad.
Pannu says that they have approached City with a view to getting the player on a permanent deal, but the Eastland`s outfit have rejected the idea point blank.
'What has happened is that we have actually approached Manchester City with a view to buying him,' said Pannu, speaking to a fans' forum.
'But the difficulty is that we have recognised him as a fabulous goalie and Manchester City recognise that as well.
'So they very politely rejected our approach to them to purchase him. They have said they will let him stay here for another season on loan, but he is not for sale.'
He added: 'They appreciate the way Alex has built him up, he has got a very strong reputation in England. They appreciate that and will give us priority on the loan deal.
'He will be with us for another season, unless anything changes. That is the position.'
