Celtic's Bobo Balde is a £400,000 target for Premiership outfits Birmingham City and Sunderland.

The Sunday Mail believes that Birmingham boss Alex McLeish contacted Celtic last week but could be faced with competition from Roy Keane's Sunderland who tried to buy the defender in the summer.

While the centre half turned down a move then he is now likely to be tempted by a move following his failure to break into the Celtic first team.
