Birmingham City have cut short Greg Stewart's loan spell with Scottish Premiership side Kilmarnock, with a view to selling the forward this month.

The Championship side have asked the 28-year-old, whose contract expires in the summer, to report back on Monday.

Former Dundee attacker Stewart returned north in August and has scored eight goals for the shock title challengers.

Manager Steve Clarke said last month Kilmarnock were "looking forward to having him for the rest of the season".

The Ayrshire club have not yet ruled out the possibility of the forward returning at some stage.

Stewart is yet to score in 22 appearances for Birmingham, who are eighth in the Championship, four points off the promotion play-off places, and are under a transfer embargo.

Garry Monk's side host Middlesbrough on Saturday and Kilmarnock return from their winter break the following Saturday with a Scottish Cup fourth-round tie at home to Forfar Athletic.

Kilmarnock have extended Bournemouth forward Mikael Ndjoli's loan deal until the end of the season and are likely to retain Jordan Jones despite the winger agreeing a pre-contract deal with Rangers.
