Forest wait on fresh Burke bid

Birmingham are mulling over a vastly-improved bid from Nottingham Forest for Chris Burke.

Chris Burke: High on Forest's wanted list

Blues rejected an initial bid of £300,000 from their Championship rivals earlier this month but the latest offer, which is believed to be much closer to their valuation of the winger, may be accepted.

Reds boss Alex McLeish is a long-time admirer of Burke having given the Scot his chance at Rangers before luring him to Birmingham in 2011, although he left the club just days later to take over at Aston Villa.

McLeish is now looking to link up with the 29-year-old wideman for a third time as Forest strive to strengthen their hopes of securing at least a play-off place.

Burke's potential exit is not expected to be the only one from St Andrew's before the close of the January transfer on Thursday night, with the likes of Jack Butland, Curtis Davies, Marlon King, Nikola Zigic and Nathan Redmond all heavily linked with moves away.

Financially-stricken Birmingham are in need of funds as they look to stave off the possible threat of administration, with every member of manager Lee Clark's squad available at the right price.

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
