BIRMINGHAM City are poised for a second transfer raid on cash-strapped Ipswich.
Hard on the heels of their £1.3million swoop for midfielder Jamie Clapham, the Midlanders are ready to test Town's resistance with a bid for defender Hermann Hreidarsson.
But Brum manager Steve Bruce will only move for the Icelandic international if he cannot prise
ex-Suffolk youngster Matthew Upson away from Arsenal.
Upson, who used to play for the same local junior club as ex-Town pair Richard Wright and Kieron Dyer, is Birmingham's number one target.
