Birmingham City won't appoint Aitor Karanka as Harry Redknapp replacement

Aitor Karanka will not be the next Birmingham City manager, Sky sources understand.
Karanka was viewed as a strong contender for the job but the Blues will not bring in the Spanish coach after an interview at the club.
Birmingham are without a manager after the sacking of Harry Redknapp earlier this month.
Lee Carsley has been placed in temporary charge at St Andrew's but has stated he does not want to be considered for the role and feels the club should appoint a more experienced manager.
Carsley led Birmingham to their first point in six Sky Bet Championship games in his first game in temporary charge when Blues drew to Derby last weekend.
Former Tottenham and West Ham manager Redknapp was sacked after just 13 games as Birmingham boss and Carsley has stepped up from his role as under-23 manager.
