Information on offer in Queensland reveals that the England-born Nigerian attacking midfielder has penned a fresh two-year contract with the English Championship outfit, who want to buy Onazi from Trabzonspor of Turkey.

The Blues’ manager, Harry Redknapp on Thursday confirmed interest in Onazi, but the big news out of Birmingham is their shock deal with 16-year-old Okoro, whose father played for Rangers International of Enugu in years past
