Torino midfielder set to join Blues in club-record deal
Birmingham City look set to sign Torino midfielder Afriyie Acquah for a club record €9m fee, a source from Italy has told Vital Birmingham.
The 25-year-old has been linked with the club over the past couple of weeks and it now looks like Blues have agreed a deal for the Ghanaian international.
Harry Redknapp has moved quickly following the disappointment at being unable to secure a work permit for Ogenyi Onazi to sign, although a deal for Acquah was always on the cards.
The Blues boss confirmed after yesterday's defeat at Burton that he was set to travel to Italy over the weekend - in hope that he could secure the services of the Torino man.
Earlier today, Acquah followed the official Birmingham City Twitter account.
