Dan Burn: Impressed during a loan spell at Yeovil last season

The Blues are in the market for defensive reinforcements after seeing Curtis Davies complete a switch to Premier League new boys Hull City.

Burn has been identified as a top target, with the 21-year-old having caught the eye during a season-long loan at Yeovil Town in 2012/13.

Birmingham boss Lee Clark has admitted that he has two loan deals in the pipeline for Premier League centre-halves, and Burn would appear to be one of those set for a switch to St Andrew's.

Clark told the Birmingham Mail: "I have agreed terms with two players and two Premier League clubs to take a right-sided centre-half and a left-sided centre-half on season-long loans.

"Those deals are subject to medicals when the lads get off holidays, as Premier League teams aren't due back for 10 days to two weeks.

"But I hope to have those completed next week because the agreements with the players and the clubs are in place.

"It's just down to them coming through the medicals. I have spoken to both players and I will be delighted to get them."

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.
