Birmingham ponder ambitious bid for Lyon star Bastos

Birmingham City are weighing up an ambitious move for Lyon wing-back Michel Bastos.

Birmingham gaffer Alex McLeish held meetings with Blues owner Carson Yeung in Johannesburg as both took in World Cup action, says the People.

Transfers were on the agenda and the chase for a new left-back will have cropped up. Bastos provides cover at international level for Inter Milan star Maicon and the 26-year-old has had an impressive season for French club Lyon, after joining from Lille last summer for £14m.

Now, McLeish hopes to add him to his squad when the World Cup is over.
