Birmingham are in talks with Tottenham striker Robbie Keane over a possible move to St Andrew's, the club have confirmed.

Blues boss Alex McLeish has made it clear signing a quality forward is his number one priority during the current transfer window. Keane has slipped down the pecking order at White Hart Lane and is desperate to play regular first team football.

He has also recently been linked with a move to relegation-threatened West Ham although no concrete movements have been forthcoming.

Birmingham's lack of goal power has been the main reason why they have been locked in a survival battle during the first half of the season.

Midfielder Craig Gardner is the top scorer with just five goals and McLeish has become frustrated at his side's inability to convert their chances.

McLeish spent £6million in the summer on Serbian international Nikola Zigic but he is still coming to terms with the demand of the Premier League.

Cameron Jerome has failed to reproduce the form which brought him 11 Premier League goals last season while Kevin Phillips is now at the veteran age of 37.

Keane spent the second half of last season on loan at Celtic.
