Harry Redknapp has signed a one-year contract to stay on in his role as manager of Birmingham, the club have announced.
The 70-year-old guided Birmingham to safety in the Sky Bet Championship after taking over from Gianfranco Zola on April 18.
The former West Ham, Tottenham and QPR boss led the Blues to two wins in their final three matches as the West Midlands club avoided relegation by two points.
After keeping City in the division, the former Tottenham Hotspur and Queens Park Rangers chief hinted that he would like to stay on for another year if given assurances by Far East backers Trillion Trophy Asia.
Successful talks between Redknapp and the club’s owners were held earlier this week, with the experienced boss agreeing to stay on for at least another 12 months.
Birmingham have yet to give details of Redknapp’s full backroom staff.
