Birmingham boss Steve Bruce is debating whether to sign Mohammed Kallon.
The 27-year-old striker is a free agent after Monaco paid up his contract and he has been training with Birmingham.
"He's training with us and getting into shape," said Bruce. "If he can do us a turn, then we're in pole position to sort something out.
"He's been with us a few days now and we're considering what's best. But it's fair to say he is something a little bit different to what we've got."
