The Ghana star met the Blues' manager on Wednesday, fuelling reports of an imminent move to England

Ghana midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang Badu is on the verge of joining English Championship side Birmingham City from Udinese after meeting the club's head coach Harry Redknapp and director of football Jeff Vetere on Wednesday.

The 26-year-old, who admitted last month he would cherish a change of environment after spending seven years in Italy with the Zebras, has been increasingly linked to Stoke City, Huddlesfield Town and Birmingham.

According to reports in the local media, the former Asante Kotoko star could sign a three-year deal with an option for extension should Udinese accept the bid. 

The meeting between Badu and Birmingham City officials reportedly took place hours before Udinese's 2-1 victory over Huddlesfield in a pre-season friendly on Wednesday.

Redknapp is in the market to strengthen his side as they eye qualification to the Premier League next season.

Goal understands that Turkish side Bursaspor, who are chasing Ghana striker Abdul Majeed Waris, are also interested in Badu's services.

He boasts of 76 international games with Ghana and has scored 10 goals since making his debut in 2008.
