Harry Redknapp is set to a double deal for Arsenal pair Carl Jenkinson and Cohen Bramall on season-long loans.
Birmingham boss Redknapp has been desperate to strengthen his squad to try and make a push for the play-offs and the two full backs is a major coup for him.
Jenkinson, 25, who has three years left on his deal at Arsenal, will join until the end of the season and will be a major coup for the Blues.
Crystal Palace tried to get Jenkinson last season and there has been Premier League interest but he is read to go to Birmingham to get playing again.
Bramall, 21, joined Arsenal from non-league Hednesford Town but they believe he now needs experience to try and develop as a player.
He has great pace but is still developing and Arsenal do not yet see him as a first teamer.
Birmingham are hoping to complete the deals today and get them straight in the team.
The double deal continues Arsenal’s clear out of squad players after Gabriel joined Valencia for £10m.
Deportivo La Coruña are also closing in on Lucas Perez on a loan deal with an option to buy next year.
