Quashie could be in place for Burnley clash

Quashie could be in place for Burnley clash

Birmingham City are likely to have Nigel Quashie on loan from West Ham United ready for their next Championship game against Burnley.

Manager Alex McLeish has been in talks with the London based club and he revealed that a deal had been agreed to bring the player to St Andrews for an initial month long loan spell.

Quashie has been training with Blues and has featured in three friendly games for the reserve side.

"We would hope to tie Nigel up on a month`s deal with a view to extending that, if he proves his fitness," McLeish told the Birmingham Mail.

"Probably before Burnley we will get it done. With the amount of games coming after that, he would be a welcome addition. He has trained hard for a month but his circumstances have been unfortunate as he lost his mother.

"So in-between us keeping him and getting him fit, getting him to prove he is over his injuries because there is a tendency to come back and pick up niggles, it`s been stop-start due to his mother being ill and her death.

He`s got things to tend there before he can immerse himself right back into it again and we are very sympathetic to his needs at the moment."
