Birmingham receive fresh encouragement over Miccoli move

Birmingham City have received encouragement in their pursuit of Palermo striker Fabrizio Miccoli.

Birmingham City have received encouragement in their pursuit of Palermo striker Fabrizio Miccoli.

Miccoli and his agent are set to meet with club officials to demand a move to St Andrew’s, says the Birmingham Mail.

Palermo rejected Blues’ initial offer in the region of £4 million for Miccoli, who scored 19 times in Serie A last season.

Last week sporting director Walter Sabatini said if Miccoli insisted he wanted to leave, they would negotiate a transfer.

So Miccoli is ready to force the issue and open up the way for Blues, according to the feedback to St Andrew’s from the 30-year-old’s camp.
