Sunderland sound out Birmingham for Kapo

Sunderland have made an enquiry for Birmingham City midfielder Olivier Kapo.

The 27-year-old moved to St Andrews in a £3million deal from Juventus last summer and made an immediate impression in the Premier League.

The French international scored on his debut against Chelsea and also made decisive goalscoring contributions against Bolton Wanderers and Wigan Athletic.

But Alex McLeish's appointment as Steve Bruce's successor at Birmingham has seen Kapo fall out of favour.

The left-sided midfielder has made just three substitute appearances since McLeish took over and is keen to play on a regular basis.
