Skysports.com understands Birmingham are closing in on the signing of Tottenham striker Robbie Keane.
As revealed by skysports.com on Tuesday, Birmingham have opened talks with Tottenham about a deal for the Republic of Irelandinternational.
Discussions are believed to be at an advanced stage between both parties with Birmingham hoping to be able to have the green light to let Keane undergo a medical.
Blues boss Alex McLeish has made a new striker his top priority in this month’s transfer window and it appears Keane could be on his way to St Andrews.

By all accounts Tottenham were not keen on doing too many loan deals for players they were looking to offload on a permanent basis and with that in mind Alex McLeish is set to sign Irish international Robbie Keane for around £8m. Birmingham City could well do with extra firepower having managed just 20 Premier League goals this season, the second lowest in the Premier League behind Wigan.
This deal should suit all parties well as Robbie Keane is a proven marksman who will surely have a few seasons in the tank and will at least be more or less guaranteed a good run in the first team at St Andrews’ and now Harry Redknapp can look to reinvest the funds into new additions he appears keen to bring in.
