Transfer Talk: Initial talks held with Southampton striker
Birmingham City have reportedly held initial talks with Southampton striker Sam Gallagher about a potential loan deal, according to Sky Sports.
Sky are reporting that Blues, Aston Villa and Derby County have all held talks with the Premier League club about a possible season-long loan deal for the 19-year-old.
However, the Saints are also willing to let the teenager leave the club on a permanent deal worth up to £8 million.
Blues are in the market for a striker with manager Harry Redknapp still wanting to add to his squad so Gallagher may well be the man he is after.
