Birmingham City have reportedly gone back to League Two side Luton Town with an improved offered for striker Isaac Vassell, according to journalist Alan Nixon.

Initially, both Blues and Bristol City saw their opening bids of £1.2 million rejected for 23-year-old forward, but it is now believed that Harry Redknapp has returned with a higher offer.

Nixon tweeted: ‘Birmingham City back in strong for Vassell. Battle on with Bristol City again.’

Last week, the Hatters manager Nathan Jones said that he wouldn’t stand in the way of Vassell reaching his full potential and he now looks like he could be set for a move to the Championship.

It is believed that a fee in the region of £1.5-£2 million would be enough to secure the services of the striker who has scored two goals in his opening two league games this season.

The news comes just hours after Blues beat Bristol City 2-1 at St.Andrew’s in a game that saw Blues’ main goal threat, Che Adams, limp off with a hamstring injury.
