Last updated : 16 March 2006 By Brian Cartlidge

The 28-year-old Czech Republic international, who is on a season long loan deal at Blues, has been told that his future probably lies away from Stamford Bridge and he has hinted at a permanent deal at St Andrew's should the club escape relegation.

"If Birmingham stay up, we will talk to them about staying," Jarosik's agent Viktor Kolar told BBC Sport.

"We heard manager Steve Bruce wants to keep him. He wants to stay in England.

"Jiri is fully focused on keeping Birmingham in the Premiership.

"He is convinced they will not be relegated but if they do go down, it is unlikely he would stay."
