Birmingham manager Steve Bruce has confirmed his interest in signing West Ham defender Paul Konchesky but also revealed the two clubs were "a bit apart" in terms of the valuation of the player.

Blues have made a bid in the region of £2million but it is understood the Hammers are looking for double that amount for the former England full-back.

Bruce said: "It is not for me to talk about players - but, yes, Paul Konchesky is someone we are looking at. We put a bid in about three weeks ago and that hasn´t changed. It is fair to say our valuations are a bit apart at the moment."
