Birmingham’s chief executive Xuandong Ren has reportedly visited Karanka in Spain, as the club look to finalise negotiations with the 46-year-old who is been out of management for over a year-and-a-half.

Karanka has experience of winning promotion from the Championship in the past, guiding Middlesbrough to automatic promotion in 2015/16.

The Spaniard has also spent time in charge of Nottingham Forest, guiding the Reds to within touching distance of the play-offs before his relationship with the board broke down.
