Birmingham City giant attracting Premier League interest

The agent of Nikola Zigic has claimed that the Serb is attracting interest from a number of top Premier League outfits, including the likes of Tottenham and Manchester City.

The Blues are keen to offload the 6 ft 8 inch striker and the wage bill he brings with him, which is proving an obstacle for potential suitors also.

According to his agent, Milan Calasan, Everton, Wigan and Sunderland have all made enquiries into the striker’s availability, but are put off by the forward’s valuation.

One thing for sure is that Zigic won’t be playing for Birmingham next season with Calasan telling Serbian newspaper, Blic: “Zigic certainly won’t be playing in the Championship. There are clubs in England which are willing to meet the demands for him, and it is possible he will be continuing his career in the Premier League.”

The striker is keen to progress in a top-flight side, and German teams Hannover and Nurnberg showing interest. Calasan added: “His career may well continue in a Bundesliga side.”
