The 29-year-old former Chelsea full-back is out of contract at Blues this summer.

"In the last couple of months of your contract clubs start approaching you," Melchiot has told Sky Sports News.

"That's going to happen, it's normal. I've been approached, but that's no surprise. At the moment I have to worry about Birmingham.

"In the back of your mind you have to consider your own situation, but when games are being played you can't think about your future only about doing well for your club."
