Birmingham City are said to be one of several English Football League clubs after the signature of departing Kilmarnock striker Kyle Lafferty (FLW).
The Northern Irish international forward scored 13 goals in as many games for Kilmarnock after joining in February but it was not enough to keep them in the Scottish Premiership, Killie suffering relegation. Now the likes of Birmingham City are keen on the striker.
While Lafferty turns 34 in September, it has not put off plenty of English Championship clubs, with West Brom, Cardiff City, Middlesbrough, Derby County, Birmingham City just some of the names linked to Lafferty.
It comes after the striker’s exit from Kilmarnock ended in controversial terms. Lafferty made claims in the media over Kilmarnock’s treatment on his exit, but the Rugby Park club responded: “We received a series of figures from his representatives which were four times higher than the sum he received towards the end of the 2020/21 campaign.
“At this point, we informed Kyle and his representatives that there was no possibility of agreeing to those terms. Kyle told the newspaper: ‘that contracts were offered to individuals and given a few hours to make a decision.’ This is simply not true.”
