Birmingham City’s move for in-demand Hibs striker Kevin Nisbet is off after the Scottish club refused to negotiate despite the player handing in a transfer request, according to a report from the Daily Record.
It seems that has not been enough to prize him away from Hibs, however, as a fresh report from the Daily Record has indicated that they refused to negotiate with the Championship club after Nisbet handed in a transfer request.
It is understood the Scottish club were holding out for a bid in the region of £3.5 million but that the striker was hopeful a deal may get done and was ready to travel to Birmingham tonight.
Nisbet is said to be frustrated with Hibs’ refusal to sanction a move that could’ve been a significant financial boost for them and a huge opportunity for him.
The Blues have struggled in front of goal this season, an issue that the 23-year-old could have proven the solution to.
Did each of these 18 ex-Birmingham City players ever score a goal at St Andrew’s?
This is a frustrating blow for the Blues, who it seems have missed out despite the player handing in a transfer request.
Aitor Karanka could do with adding some more firepower and Nesbit appeared a fantastic option, particularly at 23 and in hot form in 2020/21.
Unfortunately for them the move is now off, it’ll be interesting to see if the Championship outfit have anything lined up before tonight’s deadline.
