Four Blues Goals = 5 Million?

Reports in the Daily Express today claim that Birmingham City have put a 5million price tag on Blues striker Emile Heskey.

The 28-year-old former England hitman is said to be wanted by Fulham, Blackburn Rovers and Wigan Athletic despite the Blues board saying they don't have to sell any of their players. Gold has said that Heskey will be 'awesome' in the Championship but a bid of 5million would certainly test their resolve to keep the best players, especially as Heskey has yet to comment.

5million for a striker who scored four goals last season? Sounds like very good business to me.

if a bid of 5million came in i think we should snap off their hands to sell him. i do think he will do ok for us next seaosn in the champ but doubt his application if i am being honest. as long as that money goes back into team rebuilding i would say sell sell sell.

It is obvious with that sort of price tag that they have no intention of selling him.

Good business. Well OTT if someone is silly enough to pay that, great for you if he stays, cos he's gonna be awesome in the 2nd division (championship).

Agree alphieblues, Gold has already said he would be awesome in the Champ and he might well be right IF he is up for it. I still get the feeling he might be allowed to go though.
