Perth Glory distance away from Philips

A-League side Perth Glory have distanced themselves from Birmingham striker,Kevin Philips.

Earlier in the week,Perth Glory were reported to be strongly considering approaching former West Brom man for his move to the club 'down under'.

Birmingham City then threatened to report the matter to FIFA for tapping up their player who had recently returned from a hamstring injury.

Now,Perth Glory coach,Dave Mitchell has confirmed that they no longer would make contact with the former England man.

"We regret any misunderstanding in this matter and can categorically say that Perth Glory has not made any contact with Kevin Phillips," Mitchell said.

Kevin is obviously a wonderful player and the kind of top-class professional we'd like at our club.

However, he is contracted to Birmingham and we completely respect that fact."
