Birmingham are reportedly in talks with Arsenal over defender Armand Traore with a view to bringing him to St Andrews on a loan deal.

The 19-year-old spent a full season at Portsmouth last term and with things as they are at Arsenal at the moment, it is believed that Arsene Wenger may be interested in the youngster getting another season`s football under his belt on another loan.

Blues boss Alex McLeish is said to be keen on the right back as he looks to bolster his defence ahead of the new season.
