Luton Town's Warren Feeney has been linked with a move to Birmingham City.

The Hatters striker attracted particular interest after his second half goal for Northern Ireland against Portugal.

The Northern Irish managed a 1-1 draw against Luis Felipe Scolari's men and Steve Bruce's scouts were on hand to see Feeney net a superb header.

Birmingham currently sit second bottom in the Premiership and have only scored seven league goals. Bruce could move for Feeney in January in order to boost his side's chances of moving away from the relegation zone.

The 24-year-old appeared flattered by Birmingham's overtures, but stressed that he is happy at Kenilworth Road.

"I heard about Birmingham's interest at the club," Feeney told the Belfast Telegraph.

"And I must say it is very flattering when a Premiership side takes an interest in you.

"But I won't get too carried away with news like that. I will keep my feet firmly on the ground and get on with my football.

"Things are going well for me at the club and international level and I will have to work hard to make sure that continues.

"Every player wants to play against the best players and they are in the Premiership, but I have a job to do at Luton.

"I have started every game for them - that's 21 so far - and I have six goals but I want more.

"All I'm worrying about is helping Luton to win matches and making sure I play regular football for them and hopefully, Northern Ireland."
