Birmingham boss Alex McLeish falls short with 1.6m bid for Nigeria striker Peter Odemwingie

Birmingham have failed in a 'ridiculous' £1.6million bid to sign Nigeria World Cup striker Peter Odemwingie from Lokomotiv Moscow. The 28-year-old was put on the market before the tournament in South Africa, with Lokomotiv looking asking about £8.5m for a player with just a year left on his current contract. Everton, Fulham and French teams have also shown interest in Odemwingie, but Birmingham are the only team to table a former bid. Cough up: Odemwingie will not be allowed to leave his club on the cheap Lokomotiv president Nikolay Naumov said: 'The offer from Birmingham of €2m (£1.6m) seemed ridiculous to us.' Odemwingie is keen to test himself in England and believes his club must lower their asking price to a more realistic level. Lokomotiv had considered offering him in part-exchange for Tottenham striker Roman Pavlyuchenko, but have been told that the Russia striker now wants to stay in England after mulling his future this summer. Lokomotiv have responded by offering Odemwingie a new contract.   Birmingham rejoin race for Standard Liege striker Dieumerci MbokaniBirmingham turn attention to Wallace after Fulham reject Konchesky bidFC Tokyo's Yuto Nagatomo eyeing a Blues cruise as Birmingham ready bidSouth Africa striker Mphela eyeing up summer switch to BirminghamBIRMINGHAM CITY FC
