Steve Bruce remains tight-lipped over speculation that he has made a bid for
Nicky Butt. It has been reported that Birmingham have offered around £5 million for St. Nick's services but Bruce isn't giving anything away. He said:

"I'm not going to comment on speculation.

"We have made a couple of bids for two Premiership players but I'm not going to reveal who they are because that would be wrong and disrespectful."

Boro are the other team linked with Nicky Butt.
