i>Skysports.com understands Bolton have entered the chase for Hibernian defender David Murphy.
Murphy is looking for a move away from Easter Road as he seeks a new challenge and he is hoping to sort out his future in this month's transfer window.
Birmingham have been chasing the former Middlesbrough youngster for the last few weeks and have seen two bids turned down for Murphy.
Blues upped their offer for the 23-year-old earlier this week and their new bid is thought to have been accepted by Hibs.
However, they could face a fight for his signature with Wigan and Bolton also thought to have bid for his services.
The Lancashire duo are in the market for a new left-back and Murphy fits the bill for the pair.
Murphy is now expected to meet the interested clubs to discuss personal terms ahead of a potential return to England
