Hleb Unlikely To Stay At St Andrews
On-loan Birmingham midfielder Alexander Hleb says that it is very unlikely that he will join City on a permanent basis at the end of the season.
Instead, the 29 year old would prefer a move back to Arsenal where he made a name for himself.
The Belarus international has been on loan at St Andrew`s from Barcelona and it has been reported that manager Alex McLeish would like to sign the player on a full time contract, but that now looks unlikely.
Hleb said: "I want to give my best for Birmingham but if I have chance to go back to Arsenal, of course I would.
"I am happy and enjoy my time here, everything is good but this is a little bit not my style of football."
"Of course, I love Arsenal," he added. "It is always in my heart but now is too early to speak about a new club.
"Everything is possible but I am just saying if I get this chance, of course I`d come."
