Birmingham whizkid Demarai Gray can leave for just £3.5million in the winter window.

And Gray's buy-out clause goes down to just £3m next summer — which is certain to attract Premier League interest.

Blues starlet Gray, 19, sprung a major surprise by signing a new contract in the close-season to stay at St Andrew's.

Birmingham had already turned down several bids from promoted Bournemouth in excess of £5m, while Liverpool also had an option to match any offer.

But now it has become clear that Gray can go - even after committing himself to his Championship club.

Birmingham manager Gary Rowett rates Gray as one of the best prospects in the country and was determined not to sell his prize asset.

But while Blues kept him in the summer, his performances for them already this season have earned rave reviews — and admiring glances from top-flight clubs.
