Birmingham City have triggered David Murphy’s contract extension which will keep the left-back at St Andrew’s for another two seasons.
The Hartlepool born 28-year-old joined Birmingham City in 2008 and was in outstanding form last season after recovering from a broken knee cap which saw him miss the entire 2009/10 relegation campaign.
Other Blues’ players to be to be rewarded with extensions are striker Jake Jervis (one-year extension) and young centre-half Jack Deaman (six-months).
A crop of Birmingham City young guns have been awarded their first professional contracts. Midfielder Fisayo Adarabioyo has penned a two-year deal whilst Graham Hutchison (defender), Callum Reilly(midfielder) and Amari Bell (left-back) have all been offered one-year contracts. Mitch Hancox (full-back) has also been handed a six-month deal.
Following the expiration of their contracts, Caleb Folan, Ashley Sammons, Enric Valles, Cian Hughton and Luke Hubbins have all been allowed to leave the club.
Negotiation with out-of-contract pair Stephen Carr and Colin Doyle are still on-going.
