BIRMINGHAM CITY have been linked with Hannovers Hungary international winger Szabolcs Huszti, who is out of contract in the summer.

Celtic have reportedly now moved to the head of the queue for Huszti, with Everton, Bolton Wanderers and Blackburn Rovers all monitoring the situation.

Reports claiming that Blues are preparing a s4million bid for Peterborough United striker Craig Mackail-Smith during the January transfer window should be treated with incredulity.

Posh director of football and ex-Blues manager Barry Fry has also rubbished the suggestion.
