Birmingham to trump Villa for Tottenham striker Keane

Birmingham City are chasing Tottenham striker Robbie Keane.

The Mirror says Alex McLeish, whose side finish ninth last term, wants a prolific forward to play off new 6ft 8in target man Nikola Zigic.

And Tottenham marksman Keane, 29, surplus to requirements at the north London club, now tops their wish-list.

Keane is out of favour with Spurs manager Harry Redknapp, who loaned him to Celtic earlier this year.

Redknapp wants to offload Keane to raise funds to bolster his squad who have qualified for the Champions League.

Midlands neighbours Aston Villa also fancy the Republic of Ireland forward.
