Birmingham ready swoop for Aston Villa forward

Libor KozakThere are mixed feelings amongst the Birmingham City regulars in the Transfer Tavern after reports have revealed the identity of one of their emergency loan targets.

According to articles from the Birmingham Mail, Birmingham City are considering an approach for out-of-favour Villa striker, Libor Kozak.

The 26-year-old frontman is way down the pecking order at Villa Park, yet to make a single appearance so far for them this season.

It is understood that the Blues are desperate to sign an emergency replacement after Clayton Donaldson was ruled out for the next six weeks with an injury and Blues boss, Gary Rowett, believes Kozak could be an ideal replacement.

Kozak arrived at Villa for £4.5m in 2013 but after scoring four goals in 10 starts for the claret and blue side, he suffered a broken leg injury and went 19 months without action and only just recovered to full fitness this summer.

Kozak’s already limited opportunities at Villa Park will decrease even further once Gabby Agbonlahor recovers fully from a calf injury.

With the new managerial appointment of Remi Garde, Kozak is one of a list of players under consideration and if Villa give Kozak the chance to leave, Rowett will act fast to secure his services.

Blues fans, is this striker good enough? Let us know in the comments below!
