Libor Kozak: Aston Villa striker wanted by Birmingham City

Birmingham City have enquired about the availability of Aston Villa striker Libor Kozak on loan, sources have told

Birmingham boss Gary Rowett is looking to bring in a new forward before the loan window closes after losing Clayton Donaldson to injury and has identified Kozak as a possible target.

Kozak has found himself well down the pecking order at Villa Park this season and is yet to feature in the Premier League so far this term.

The Czech Republic international has not figured in a matchday squad for Villa since Remi Garde has taken charge of the club.

Kozak arrived at Villa for £4.5million from Lazio back in September 2013, but after a bright start to his Villa career he suffered a broken leg in December 2013 which sidelined him for over a year.

The 26-year-old is thought to be keen on a temporary loan switch to get some competitive football, but it remains to be seen if Villa would sanction a move for Kozak to their bitter rivals.
