Bowyer could be a Bluenose very soon

Bowyer could be a Bluenose very soon

Birmingham City boss Alex McLeish has revealed West Ham midfielder Lee Bowyer is contemplating a move to St Andrews after the two clubs have been involved in talks over the player.

The 32-year-old could have joined Blues back in 2005 but some fans weren`t happy about the situation so the move was cancelled.

Now Bowyer is out of favour at West Ham and McLeish is not too bothered about previous events.

'I would have no qualms about bringing him into the set-up at Birmingham,' said the Blues boss.

'I think he's probably learnt some harsh lessons in life. At the time he was probably a daft young boy.'

He added: 'We had talks with Lee and we're now waiting for an answer. I think he was pretty receptive with the plans I have for the team for the second half of the season and beyond. He's a player I've always admired.

'He's a bit of a dynamic player and I want to bring a dynamic look back to the team.'
