Birmingham target Newcastle duo Best and Routledge for St Andrews

Former Newcastle boss Chris Hughton is lining up a raid on his former club to bring Leon Best and Wayne Routledge to his current berth at Birmingham. Hughton signed both players during his time in charge at St James' Park and is considering a summer reunion as he looks to bolster his Blues squad as they prepare for life in the Championship.

The Blues chief revealed on Friday that his priority is bringing in new signings and is weighing up offers for Best and Routledge, both of whom are out of favour at St James' Park.

Reports have recently claimed that Toon boss Alan Pardew is prepared to offload Best to make room for new arrivals on Tyneside, whilst the name of winger Routledge has been circulated to other clubs.
