Birmingham's veteran goalkeeper Maik Taylor has agreed a new one-year contract with the Premier League club.
Midfielder Keith Fahey will also be offered a new deal after an impressive season, less than 18 months after joining from St Patrick's Athletic.
But the Northern Ireland international has impressed manager Alex McLeish sufficiently to be given a new contract.
McLeish told Press Association Sport: "Maik has accepted a new deal. I can see him becoming a future coach. He is nearing the age of 40 but like David James he is in superb condition. I need Maik to drive Ben and he still has the hunger. I'm sure he'll still be in Northern Ireland's thoughts which will keep him on his toes."
Regarding 27-year-old Fahey, McLeish, who is also confident his own new contract will be sorted out in the near future, added: "We will be discussing a new contract for Keith as well because he had an agreement that if he proved himself in the Premier League we would look at his wages."
