Birmingham midfielder Stan Lazaridis looks like he could be the first out of the St Andrews exit door as Adelaide United ready an offer.
The pacey Australian is due back in his homeland next week to engage in talks with Adelaide, as Birmingham begin to clear their ranks following relegation.
Blues supremo David Sullivan has already revealed the club's intent to cull its squad of those that have not performed and after an injury ravaged campaign, Lazaridis - out of contract - looks to be the first to go.
''Lazaridis is on the list and how far we go with it depends on manager John Kosmina,'' explained Adelaide chief executive Michael Petrillo.
Meanwhile, City chief Steve Bruce has conceded that he has real concerns about the future of David Dunn.
Since his arrival in the Midlands from Blackburn in 2003 the talented schemer has been unable to shake off a variety of injuries and having completed just two games in as many years, Bruce feels there is a serious problem.
''He has played just two 90 minutes in two years and that tells its own story,'' continued Bruce.
''The longer he is out the more difficult it is to come back.''
