Bruce: We Still Want Djou, Johan
Birmingham City are still interested in taking one of Arsenal's brightest young talents on a season-long loan.
The blue half of Brum first showed an interest as last season drew to an end. It did seem as though their interest had died down, but Steve Bruce was quoted in todays edition of The Sun as saying that he is still interested in the services of the 20-year-old.
Manager Steve Bruce was quoted in The Sun as saying: 'I have not spoken to Arsenal for a while about Djourou but I'll see where we are.
'We are still hopeful something can be done.'
It seems unlikely that Arsenal will be prepared to let the youngster go out on loan with the African Cup Of Nations likely to deprive Arsenal of Kolo Toure and Manu Eboue.
That said, Djourou was withdrawn from Arsenal's pre-season friendly with Salzburg at the last minute.
