Birmingham's Zigic on way to Racing Santander

Racing Santander's new owner Ahsan Ali Syed says a deal has been reached to bring back Serbian striker Nikola Zigic from Premier League club Birmingham.
In a statement released on Saturday, the Indian businessman said "Zigic will become (a) Racing Santander player before the winter market closes."
It will be the 30-year-old's third stint with the team where he has had the most productive seasons of his career, scoring 12 goals in 2006-07 and 13 in 2008-09.
Zigic has netted 2 goals in 19 appearances for Birmingham this season.
Ali Syed, head of the investment and asset management company Western Gulf Advisory, finalized the acquisition of Racing on Friday.
Racing is 15th, two points above the relegation zone.
