Birmingham continue to keep tabs on Janko

Red Bull Salzburg striker Marc Janko remains a target for Birmingham City boss Alex McLeish.

The Daily Mail says Janko has scored 67 goals in 92 games for Salzburg and has a one in two record for Austria. At 6ft 5in, he has been easy to spot for Europe's top scouts but the main concern has been the standard of Austria's league.

However, his price, reported to be around £6million, represents decent value and at 26 that will only increase if he proves a success in the Barclays Premier League.

McLeish has monitored the Austrian for more than a year and knows there will be pressure for success on any striker he brings in with Carson Yeung's money.
