Birmingham City manager Gary Rowett has revealed his admiration for Halifax Town defender Marc Roberts.

"I have watched him for three, four, five years now on and off and he's a player I think has progressed really, really well.

"He's played for the England C team and he's a player that perhaps long term he would be one you would look at at having potential after a period of time to play at this level.

Former Crystal Palace trialist Roberts joined Halifax from Northern League Premier Division side Buxton in the summer of 2013.

He has made 29 appearances so far this term for a side that sits just outside the play-offs.
