Birmingham City make transfer offer for Preston North End target



Birmingham City are said to have made a bid to sign Fenerbahce centre back Zanka, with Turkish newspaper Fotomac reporting that the Blues have firmed up their interest in the player. 

The 31-year-old spent the duration of the season just gone on loan at FC Copenhagen in his home country of Denmark and made 28 appearances for the club that he originally left to join Huddersfield Town in 2017.

It is said that his strong form back in his homeland has caught the eye of clubs from elsewhere, with the report going on to state that Birmingham have now made their move for the 31-year-old this summer.

Preston North End are also said to hold an interest in signing the Danish international, who made 65 appearances for Huddersfield during his last spell in English football.

The defender has only made 21 appearances to date for Fenerbahce and his future at the club now appears to be uncertain amidst the recent speculation that has been swirling around.

20 facts about Birmingham City’s top five most expensive signings – Are they true or false?

Roger Johnson scored five league goals during his time at Birmingham City – True or false?

Zanka currently has one year remaining on his current contract with the Yellow Canaries.

The Verdict 

On paper this signing would make a lot of sense for the Blues as they are in need of a new centre back after seeing Mikel San Jose depart for pastures new.

Zanka has past experience of playing in the Premier League with Huddersfield and would arguably take to the physical side of the Sky Bet Championship like a duck to water.

He is seemingly out of favour in Turkey and could well be snapped up for a knockdown price if Lee Bowyer and co can come to an agreement with Fenerbahce.

Given his international pedigree and previous stints in Europe with various other clubs, the Danish centre back would no doubt be considered a shrewd addition by Birmingham if they can get the deal over the line.
