JIM Magilton today said he has made a move for Celtic ace Bobo Balde and would consider making him the new Blues skipper.

The French born centre half would be a free agent and would have hefty wage demands but the Blues boss is confident a deal could be struck.

Magilton said: “Bobo has been made available by Celtic and we would like a conversation with him.

“If we can get him down and have a chat then we would like to, but it would be down to him and his advisors.

“I know Birmingham are very interested, but we have shown our interest so if we can get him here for a chat then you never know.”
