Papa Bouba Diop is poised to link up with former Fulham team-mate Lee Clark at Birmingham City by signing a short-term deal at St. Andrew’s.

The Senegalese international, who made 84 appearances in three years at Fulham, is set to sign a one-month contract having agreed personal terms and passed a medical at Birmingham. Clark views Diop as a bargain for his cash-strapped side with proven Championship pedigree after helping West Ham win promotion back to the top flight last season.

Diop enjoyed a successful trial with the Blues and is due to finalise his move once the Home Office rubber stamps his work permit.
