Three Clubs In For Butt - Fergie

Last updated : 26 January 2004 By Brian Cartlidge

The other two clubs that have expressed an interest in the tranfer-listed England international so far are Tottenham and Everton.

"Karren Brady at Birmingham spoke to our chief executive David Gill and we've told them what we're looking for," Fergie told Sky Sports.

"They are trying to structure a deal to talk to Nicky.

"Apart from that, Middlesbrough might come in and we've had enquiries from Spurs and Everton."

"Ideally I'd like Nicky to stay, but I understand his situation.

"Letting Nicky go somewhere on loan is not an option."
