Palacios release reports premature, say Blues

Birmingham City have admitted reports claiming the brother of midfielder Wilson Palacios has been released by kidnappers in his native Honduras are 'premature.'

Fifteen-year-old Edwin Palacios was abducted a fortnight ago but it was announced yesterday his ordeal was finally over.

However, although the situation is believed to be close to being resolved, Edwin is still to be released.

Birmingham, in a media statement, said: 'Further to earlier reports, Birmingham City FC now understands that news of the release of Wilson Palacios' kidnapped brother are premature.

'The club was told in good faith on Thursday, by both the player himself and his agent, that Wilson's 15-year-old brother Edwin had been released by his kidnappers.

'It now appears that, although the situation is close to being resolved, Wilson and his agent had been incorrectly informed themselves.

'Wilson is currently in Miami with the Honduras national side but, because of the time difference, the club has not yet been able to fully clarify the situation.'

Wilson Palacios played in the Second City derby with Aston Villa last weekend despite the uncertainty surrounding his brother after being left out of the previous week's game at Everton.
