Birmingham have been given a boost in their attempts to woo Slovakian international striker Jan Novak to St. Andrews with the forward revealing to skysports.com that he’d be very interested in a £2.7 million move to the West Midlands club in the upcoming January transfer window.
The 23-year-old striker, who plays for Slovakian side MFK Kosice, has recently trained at Birmingham following a successful trial period and is optimistic of signing for the club as soon as the window opens as Alex McLeish is reportedly very keen on signing strikers to boost his firepower. After speaking with McLeish, Novak told skysports.com
“Birmingham City are a top club of high quality. After one of the matches I had an interview with manager Alex McLeish. The coach asked me how I liked England, if I was glad to be at Birmingham and complimented me in the end. […] I would not at all be against a move to Birmingham, it is a dream for every player to play in the English Premier League. I would be very happy if it became a reality.”
Novak has revealed though that the deal is far from complete with negotiations between Birmingham and Kosice still ongoing. Kosice brushed the matter off as an issue for the clubs’ representatives and his agent and reveals confident that the move will take place.
Novak has scored eight league goals so far this season for Kosice.
[Is there any substance to this and should this rumour Fly or Die?]
