Kenny Miller could be set to turn his back on a move to Serie A with Fiorentina and accept Birmingham's offer to play in the Premiership.

The Gers striker had seemed certain to sign for the Viola but reports today suggest he's turned his back on Italy and is ready to once more play under Alex McLeish who was his manager at Hibernian and for a very brief time during his first stint at Ibrox.

McLeish had a bid of around £700,000 accepted by Rangers last week and held talks with the Scotland international over the weekend in an attempt to secure his services but an offer of £20,000 per week from the Florence club had looked set to sway the player to further his career in the Italian top flight.

However, the 31 year old, out of contract at the end of the season, now looks set to re-join McLeish in the Midlands and spearhead the Blues bid for safety in the Premiership and a place in the Carling Cup Final.

The 22 goal star will be returning to familiar ground if he does sign on at St Andrews having previously played in England's elite league with both Derby County and Birmingham's close rivals, Wolves.
