Birmingham City have stepped up their hunt for Torino midfielder Afriyie Acquah, according to reports in the Italian press.

The club want to complete a quick deal for the 25-year-old following their frustration at being unable to gain a work permit for Ogenyi Onazi to join earlier in the week.

Blues are awaiting the OK from the Italian club as they look for Acquah’s replacement – a deal for Godfred Donsah is pending.

It was reported that Blues had an ?8m bid rejected for Acquah last week but it now looks like Harry Redknapp has returned with intent.

The Blues boss told the Birmingham Mail yesterday that the Ghanaian has ‘always been one we’ve been after’.
