Birmingham City have tabled a £2million bid for Hibernian striker Kevin Nisbet, according to the Scottish Sun.
Nisbet has been in excellent form for Hibernian this season, scoring 13 goals in a total of 29 games across all competitions.
The 23-year-old – who arrived from Dunfermline for £200,000 in the summer – has scored 11 goals in 23 league outings this term.

Nisbet has now emerged as a target for Birmingham City, with the club reportedly submitting a £2million bid for the striker.
Aitor Karanka will be looking to add more firepower to his squad before the transfer window closes on Monday, with Sam Cosgrove also said to be on the club’s radar.
With Lukas Jutkiewicz and Scott Hogan both struggling for form in front of goal this season, the addition of another striker certainly wouldn’t go amiss.
Here, we take a look at Birmingham fans’ reactions to the club making their move for Nisbet, with a potential seven-figure move on the cards…
Don’t know much about Nisbet but I just watched him bang in 20 goals for Raith Rovers on YouTube and am now fully convinced he’s the best player in the world. #bcfc

Hope we get Nisbet, Cosgrove will just turn out to be another Juke 😴

Ah Kevin Nisbet.
Will sign for £2m, score one goal, never get back in the side and be loaned back to Scotland before leaving for about £400k in 12-18 months.
The Blues way. #bcfc

Fingers crossed – get back to the days when we had strength, a noisy crowd, a great kit and we knew where the back of the net washttps://t.co/DtRD6pswIw
