Birmingham City face competition for Moussa Dembele’s signature from their former owners, David Sullivan and David Gold, reports the Birmingham Mail.

The West Ham United pair have entered the running for the Belgian international striker, who also has West Bromwich Albion on his list of possible destinations.
