Birmingham chief Peter Pannu admits he may be forced to cash in on Jack Butland in the January transfer window.
The 19-year-old England goalkeeper is being chased by several teams, most notably Liverpool, and the Blues may have to sell in a bid to stave off the threat of administration.
The St Andrews club rejected a £6million bid from Southampton for Butland in the summer, but acting chairman Pannu confesses the cash-strapped club may not be able to turn down a realistic offer as they seek to ease their increasing financial struggles.
"I can't say that we are in a very wonderful situation, I would be lying if I said that," Pannu told the Birmingham Mail
"This is a very tricky question [player sales]. What I can say is that - and I might be blasted for this by the fans - but no-one is for sale and everyone is available. [It's the same] as at any club.
"Give me a £15m offer for Jack Butland, can I say no?
"I have rejected £6m from Southampton but I rejected it when our finances were okay.
"As the time is ticking, I might not be able to reject it if I get something similar.
"I do have a responsibility to keep the club running.
"My top priority now - and if I do offend anyone, I care not - is to make sure this clubs stays afloat."
