Birmingham eye Blake move

Birmingham City are eyeing a move for former Crystal Palace defender Darcy Blake, Sky Sports understands.

Blake is looking for a new club after leaving Palace on transfer deadline day last month.

The 25-year-old only made ten appearances during his 18-month stint at Palace and is keen to kick-start his career again.

Blake has now linked up with Birmingham for training so that Lee Clark and his coaching staff can cast an eye over him.

Clark is thought to be keen to bolster his defensive options at St Andrew's and if Blake impresses during his training stint he could be offered a deal by the Championship outfit.
