Fulham and Birmingham City face Spanish Liga competition for Cardiff City striker Jay Bothroyd.

Both clubs are interested in the England cap, who is expected to be sold by Cardiff this month as he comes off contract in June.

Bothroyd is also wanted in Spain, where Atletico Madrid and big-spending Malaga are keen.

The former Arsenal and Perugia forward is understood to favour remaining in England, however.
