Agent: Birmingham getting O'Connor on cheap

The agent of Lokomotiv Moscow striker Garry O'Connor says Birmingham City will be getting the Scot on the cheap if they meet his £3 million asking price.

Rudi Vata said: "Steve Bruce is very keen on Garry and he in turn says he has a good feeling about joining Birmingham.

"It could cost £3million in the end but what is that to a Premiership side with ambitions? They will be buying an international striker who is a proven goalscorer in Scottish and Russian football and will get plenty in England as well.

"I reckon if he has a lucrative season in the Premiership then his value could soar to nearer £10million and other clubs in the top six would be lining up to buy him."
