According to reports in the Sunday Daily Star, Stoke and QPR have joined Wolves in the chase for Stephen Carr.

The 34 year old has been with Birmingham since 2009 and captained the side to the Carling cup last season. However the former Spurs and Newcastle defender couldn’t prevent the Blues slide out of the EPL.

Since joining the midlands outfit Carr has revived his career and has made 86 appearances for the club.

The former Irish international is a keen player however the club’s drop down a division, coupled with money laundering charges hanging over club president Carson Yeung, has impacted on the club’s financial stability and means that manager Chris Hughton is being forced to sell players.

With Ben Foster and Roger Johnson having left the club for WBA and Wolves and Liam Ridgewell and Scott Dann been linked with the exit door, any sale of Carr would mean that Birmingham could start the new season without any of last season’s first choice defence.
