Birmingham City Want Chris Kirkland




Wigan Athletic goalkeeper Chris Kirkland is a target for Championship club Birmingham City according to the People.

Birmingham have allowed their current number one, Ben Foster, to join West Brom on a season long loan with a view to a permanent move and are looking to bring in an experienced keeper as his replacement, Chris Hughton has identified Latics shotstopper Kirkland to be the man he wants.

Kirkland as fallen down the pecking order at the Latics with Ali Al-Habsi first choice between the sticks, seasoned pro Mike Pollitt backed Al-Habsi from the bench for most of last season and with young keeper Lee Nicholls pushing for a place in the first team squad it would appear that Kirkland`s time could well be up at the DW Stadium.

Kirkland is also one of the clubs big earners and boss Roberto Martinez would love to free up what is after all dead money, to allow him to strengthen his squad.
