Birmingham City look set to miss out on one of their top targets this January with Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek reportedly on the brink of joining top of the table Brighton and Hove Albion.

Reports on social media site Twitter suggest that the young midfielder is likely to join the Seagulls ahead of Blues who were believed to be the front runners heading into the transfer window.

New Blues boss Gianfranco Zola was thought to have identified Loftus-Cheek as the man he wanted to bolster his midfield but it now looks as though he is set to miss out on the 20-year-old.

The powerful midfielder is just one of the names that has been linked with the club since the window opened over the weekend, with fellow team mate Dominic Solanke being another name heavily linked with a move to the Midlands.
