Birmingham move for ex-Villa striker Baros

Birmingham City boss Alex McLeish is moving for ex-Aston Villa striker Milan Baros.

The Czech Republic forward, 26, has failed to settle at Lyon after being offloaded by Villa boss Martin O'Neill in January in a swap for John Carew.

And that has alerted former Rangers boss McLeish, who is set to be handed around £6m for new players when the transfer window opens.

But McLeish, also lining up a move for Sheffield United's Scottish full-back Gary Naysmith, may face competition from Wigan's ex-Birmingham manager Steve Bruce and Middlesbrough for Baros.

Baros's agent Pavel Paska said: "I believe Milan will continue to improve but he will definitely, though, not be without a contract.

"We have some offers - mainly from England and Spain."
