London:

After the successful take over of French steel company Arcelor, the world's richest Indian Laxmi Mittal is eyeing another grand acquisition - this time in the field of sports.

Mittal has emerged as a contender to buy English Premiership football club Birmingham City after making an initial inquiry.

Besides Mittal, a London-based NRI and another unnamed business magnate from the Far East was also said to be interested in the club and was likely to make a formal bid later this week.

Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur are the other English Premiership clubs that have been bought over by business tycoons in recent years.
