Rumours are Blues have made a loan bid for Crystal Palace striker Dwight Gayle, in an attempt to hijack his move to Fulham.
The 24-year-old joined the Premier League side two years ago, but two thirds of his league appearances have come from the substitutes bench.
The paper reports that Fulham have made a season-long loan bid to sign the Englishman and the deal could be wrapped up quickly, however according to The Football Forecast Blues could stop that move from happening.
With Donaldson and Thomas the only strikers likely to be at Gary Rowett’s disposal, a player like Gayle could give them competition which would be welcome to Blues fans.
With talks with trialist Mlapa dying down, if true, this would be a good move from Rowett.
Gayle joined Palace from Peterborough United for £6m.
