Baggies battling Stoke over defender
Published 22:30 30/01/12 By James Nursey
West Brom have made a new bid for Liam Ridgewell to try to head off interest from Stoke.
Championship promotion chasers Birmingham have rejected two Albion bids for their versatile left-sided defender.
Potters boss Tony Pulis, who wanted Ridgewell in August following Blues' relegation from the top flight, may offer defender Danny Higginbotham in part-exchange to get his man.
STOKE are set to sell winger Ben Marshall to Championship side Leicester for £1million.
Marshall, a former Manchester United trainee, has never played for the Potters in three years but recently had a successful loan spell at League One side Sheffield Wednesday.
