Birmingham plan shock bid for Shevchenko

Birmingham City are launching a bid for Dynamo Kiev striker Andriy Shevchenko.

The Mirror says Birmingham owner Carson Yeung wants to hand Chelsea flop Shevchenko a shock Premier League return.

Hong Kong tycoon Yeung intends to bring some big-name players to St Andrews in January to help woo fans in Asia after his £80million takeover.

Yeung is prepared to pump in at least £20m when the transfer window opens to strengthen the club's squad.

And former Chelsea and AC Milan striker Shevchenko, 33, is a target as Birmingham want two new strikers.
