Birmingham City are set to beat Liverpool for Standard Liege striker Milan Jovanovic.

The Sunday Mirror says the Serbia international has snubbed a move to Liverpool.

Blues boss Alex McLeish is ready to pay £6.5million for the Standard Liege star, who has hit 10 goals in just 24 internationals and scored one every two games in four years in Belgium.

AC Milan and Valencia have also asked about the 28-year-old, who is out of contract in the summer.

But he’s told friends that he wants to move to an English club where he can expect to play more games rather than get stuck in a rotation system.
