Blues closing in on new signings

Blues are facing competition from local rivals West Brom for the

player but McLeish received a positive response when holding talks

with Dembele’s agent. The former Scotland boss said: “I had good

vibes from the agent when I met him. “Dembele is a quality player

but I never like talking about potential signings until the deal is

done.” Juventus midfielder Mauro Camoranesi also remains on

McLeish’s radar and is due to have talks in Birmingham on Monday.

The 33-year-old is available on a free transfer. His agent, Vlado

Borozan, said: “Let’s just say that we will be in England to work

out the final details and that we are already on the right path.”
