Marlon King: Told he can find new club by Birmingham

The 32-year-old, who has scored over 30 goals since he joined Birmingham in 2011 from Midlands rivals Coventry City, is currently top-scorer for the club.

But Birmingham are struggling hugely financially and are understood to have told a number of players that if they find a new club they would be able to leave.

And Sky Sports understands that King could leave on a free transfer, despite having 18 months left on his current deal.

While King is settled at St Andrew's and is happy, a host of clubs have been alerted to the fact he could be available.

Former club Wigan, Norwich, Cardiff, Blackburn, Bolton and Nottingham Forest are thought to be monitoring his situation.

Along with King is it thought that the futures of big names such as Jack Butland, Nathan Redmond, Chris Burke and Nikola Zigic are very much up in the air.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
