Birmingham City chiefs want talks with Manchester United legend Roy Keane about the manager's job.

The former Sunderland and Ipswich chief Keane, currently in Polkraine as an ITV Euro 2012 pundit, is the only man on the list NOT to have applied to replace Norwich City-bound Chris Hughton.

Regardless of that fact, Birmingham's acting chairman Peter Pannu - encouraged by owner Carson Yeung - rates the Irishman and is trying to set up talks, says the Birmingham Mail.
