Birmingham manager Alex McLeish has played down reports that he is on the verge of signing Senegal international Lamine Diatta.

The 32-year-old defender is a free agent having bought out the remainder of his contract at Besiktas, and McLeish has made no secret of his desire to strengthen his back four after failing to land Gary Cahill before the transfer deadline.

But the former Scotland boss said: "His name came on my desk but it is nothing more than that at the moment. I am looking at it but I haven´t done anything as regards bringing him in."
