Bruce reveals move for Konchesky
West Ham's Paul Konchesky is wanted by Birmingham
Konchesky is wanted by Birmingham
Birmingham boss Steve Bruce's has confirmed that he wants to sign West Ham's Paul Konchesky.

However, West Ham are understood to want double the 2m the Blues have offered for the 26-year-old England international defender.

Bruce said: "Paul Konchesky is someone we're looking at, we put in a bid three weeks ago and it hasn't changed.

"I've got to be creative. I've got money to spend but not vast sums, which is why I'm wheeling and dealing."

Bruce has made room in his squad and freed up some funds by moving players on.

Stephen Clemence and DJ Campbell are set to join Leicester, while winger Julian Gray has joined Coventry on a free transfer.

Bruce said: "I'd like to bring in a bit of experience. We're after someone at the moment, a big name, so we'll see what happens."
