Birmingham City boss Alex McLeish has confirmed that his club have made an increased bid for Wigan Athletic's French winger Charles N'Zogbia.
The 24-year-old Les Bleus international is known to be keen to leave the Latics, with both the Blues and Sunderland having shown an interest in the player.
McLeish told his club's official website: "We have made another bid for Charles and we wait to see if it's successful or not. We're awaiting Wigan's response.
"At the same time we're in the hands of the gods in terms of the other offers. If there are other clubs in for him, then we have to wait and see
"But we've tried and we've tried our best and the board have worked hard to make these kinds of things happen."
N'Zogbia joined the Latics in January 2009 and has since scored eight goals in 54 appearances in all competitions.
He had previously spent four-and-half years at Newcastle United, having arrived in England from Le Havre in the summer of 2004.
