Birmingham after Ghana hitman

Birmingham City

Birmingham have made Ghanaian international Samuel Yeboah their latest transfer target and the striker says he is 'praying' for a move.

Blues have been linked with a number of targets since regaining their place in the Premier League and have already completed the record signing of Ecuadorian striker Christian Benitez.

Hapoel Tel Aviv frontman Yeboah is the latest name to be linked with a move to St Andrews and Birmingham’s hopes of landing him have been given a massive boost after the player himself said he would love a move to England.

“I am only praying that it will happen,” Yeboah told Sky.

“I dream of playing in England every day of my life.

“It is only speculation at the moment, so I can’t say much, but if I score for Ghana this weekend (in a World Cup qualifier against Mali) that would send a statement to the scouts who are coming to watch.”
