Larsson puts in Transfer Request

Sebastian Larsson has put in a transfer request in an effort to leave Birmingham.
The Swedish midfielder is set to see his contract at St Andrews expire in the summer, meaning he would drop into the free agent market.He is, however, keen to move on during the January transfer window and has officially informed his current employers of that desire.A switch to Newcastle fell through earlier in the month as personal terms could not be agreed, but there are a number of other willing takers still waiting in the wings.Blackburn have already had one bid rejected by Birmingham, but may be tempted to rekindle their interest.West Ham are also believed to be in the hunt for the talented 25-year-old, but they may struggle to lure him from one relegation dogfight to another.With that in mind, it is understood that Sunderland are currently in pole position to land Larsson.Steve Bruce has money in the bank following the sale of Darren Bent to Sunderland and could be prepared to part with some of that cash in order to bring added creativity into his ranks.
