According to reports, Birmingham City target Afriyie Acquah’s agent has politely spoken to Torino’s club officials about his clients move to England.

It was reported last week that the Italian side had rejected an eight million euros bid from Harry Redknapp’s side but it is now being reported that the two parties are in advanced talks.

Earlier today we brought you the news that Blues’ move for Nigerian international Ogenyi Onazi had fallen through because he wasn’t granted a work permit and it looks like they may have moved on already.

Blues are expected to return with another bid for Acquah but a number is yet to be mentioned, although you could guess that the move would be in the region of around 10 million euros.

  • Its looking more and more likely that there are no bargains to be had right now so we will need to pay the asking prices.

  • Work permits should surely be examined before any interest in a player is shown. Basic sense.What s rapidly becoming a Sun paper type daily rag here -is there anyone at Vital Birmingham who can get serious topics that deserve serious comments.It is not that onerous to get valid information before names are banded around.This latest name may or may not materialise – chances imo,perhaps not.

  • Has anyone heard the outcome of Adams scan? Harry advised last Monday that he was awaiting these results.

  • I agree totally with Ohio,basic sense to make sure a work permit will be granted before spending so much time on a deal.Way too much press speculation building up our hopes,we have been linked to countless players now with just four signings.
    Afriyie Acquah does sound class however what an amount to spend,I guess every team has to spend big now if they want to buy quality,I won’t believe he is coming until I hear the ink has dried on his contract and does this player have a work permit?

  • Bunch of clowns doing the deals. Same story when Carson was around with non-football people doing the negotiations and contracts. Just hope we don’t get a repeat of the Ziggy deal
