Rumour: Blues submit bid for Fleetwood Town striker
Birmingham City have this evening reportedly tabled a bid for Fleetwood Town striker Devante Cole, Vital Birmingham understands.
We believe that a bid in the region of £650,000 has been submitted to the League One side with several add-ons also included in the deal.
The 22-year-old striker is believed to be among a number of targets that Blues boss Steve Cotterill handed to the owners before the January transfer window opened and it now looks like they have made their first move in the market.
Early last week it was reported that fellow Sky Bet Championship side Sheffield United were also interested in bringing the 12-goal forward to the second tier of English football but it remains to be seen where he will be at the end of January.
As always, we will bring you more on this story as it develops...
