Sam is the man for Birmingham City

LEAMINGTON Hibs are celebrating success for one of their young players who has signed for Birmingham City’s academy.

Ten-year-old Sam Khan was identified as a potential star of the future when he won the under-9s category of Chelsea’s Asian Star search last summer.

He helped Hibs under-9s to second place in the Coventry John Bryan A Division last season and caught the eye of Birmingham scouts.
