Manager Gary Rowett signs new Birmingham City deal

Birmingham City announce that manager Gary Rowett and his coaching staff have all agreed new contracts with the Championship outfit.

Manager Gary Rowett has extended his contract with Championship side Birmingham City.

The 41-year-old took charge at St Andrew's in October 2014 and he was subsequently able to guide the team away from relegation trouble.

Further improvements have been made this season, with the Blues currently sitting just two points outside of the playoffs.

Such performances have now been rewarded in the shape of a new deal for Rowett and his coaching staff.

"Both the board of parent company Birmingham International Holdings Limited and the Birmingham City Football Club board acknowledge the excellent contribution of Gary and his backroom staff in the revival of the team," director Panos Pavlakis told the club's official website.

"We have had a fantastic relationship with Gary since day one. He is very happy here and we share the same vision in continuing to move the team and the club forward."

This weekend Rowett's charges will play host to fellow promotion contenders Ipswich Town.
