Birmingham City

In-demand Scottish striker turns down Birmingham City

The BBC understands that Dundee striker Greg Stewart has rejected the chance to sign for Sky Bet Championship side Birmingham City. A deal was agreed between the two clubs, but the 26-year-old has elected against moving to St Andrews.

The prolific striker, who has netted 32 goals since moving to Dundee in 2014, has now entered the final year of his contract at Dens Park. It remains to be seen if he will sign an extension, but he is forever attracting attentions from clubs south of the border. Leeds United have previously been linked with the ex-Cowdenbeath man.

Although Blues boss Gary Rowett recently added to his attacking options with the acquisition of Sheffield United forward Che Adams, missing out on Stewart is a big blow, especially as it was the player himself who decided against the move. On Tuesday night, Birmingham were knocked out of the EFL Cup by League One side Oxford United.

Recently, Dundee manager Paul Hartley described his star man as someone they ‘don’t think we can replace’. He is back in contention for their weekend clash at home to Rangers, after he missed last weekend because of injury.

Former Burton Albion boss Rowett has limited striking options available to him at the club. Clayton Donaldson is undoubtedly the star man, and Adams will help ease the load on the Jamaican. Nicolai Brock-Madsen is currently away on Olympic duty with Denmark, whilst youngster Jack Storer is untested at this level. James Vaughan has injury concerns at present as well.
