Former Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock is being linked with a role at Birmingham City.

The Mirror says Warnock is being lined up for a comeback as Birmingham City's director of football - with pal Gianni Paladini closing in on a takeover of the club.

Veteran Warnock is currently a pundit on BT Sport but has admitted he would like that type of role and his old QPR supremo is ready to make him an offer.
