EXCLUSIVE: Ridgewell doubles Brum exit demand

Liam Ridgewell has repeated his desire to quit Birmingham and reinforced his summer transfer request.
Brum's versatile left-sided defender Ridgewell, 27, has been a long-term target for Premier League West Brom.
Mirrorsport reported on January 4 that Baggies boss Roy Hodgson would bid for Ridgewell again this month after failing in August.
West Brom have since tabled two offers, with their latest £1.5m plus a fringe player – but they have both been rejected.
Now Ridgewell, who can play centre-back and left-back, has taken matters into his own hands and demanded to quit yesterday.
Ridgewell tabled a written request to leave St Andrew's in August which he insists still stands.
So Blues boss Chris Hughton went to watch Albion reserves yesterday where possible 'deal maker' players on show included left-back Joe Mattock.
