Birmingham is expected to cough out £4m for Onazi as manager Harry Redknapp attempts to pilot the club back to Premier League next season
Redknapp is looking forward to sealing Onazi's deal this week and has told Birmingham City's negotiator to speed up talks with the player's agents.
“We are trying to get him, he is a good player – an outstanding player. “We are hopeful; I don’t know where we are at today, the people who deal with that are off dealing with it," Redknapp told Bcfcfollowers.
