Dynamo Kiev won't block Birmingham move for Shevchenko

Dynamo Kiev won't block a Premiership return for striker Andriy Shevchenko.

New Birmingham owner Carson Yeung is said to be interested in the 33-year-old, partly because the one-time AC Milan star is a household name in emerging football markets such as Asia.

Dynamo president Igor Surkis said: "I haven't received an offer, but, for me, it's pleasant that Andriy is in demand. Shevchenko is reborn, becoming as he was before leaving for Milan (in 1999). His eye for goal and speed will return.

"As for offers? It doesn't just depend on me, but also on Andriy. In the summer he made a patriotic decision, rejecting offers from Italy, Spain and Turkey. I don't think he wants anything to change."
