The A-League side's coach Dave Mitchell has confirmed that his club have made enquiries as to the availability of the 35-year-old Blues striker who, up until now, has scored 13 goals in 33 appearance's for the club since his free transfer from West Brom last summer.

"That's not a rumour, that's a fact," Mitchell has said.

"He's under contract but I have made some inquiries about him and he's a good player.

"He's old but he's still very quick and darty.

"He's a fit person and he's scoring goals in the Championship regularly for Birmingham, so if we get him, he'd be a great asset."
