'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Johnson seals 5 million move to St Andrews

Birmingham have completed the signing of Cardiff defender Roger Johnson in a 5million deal.

The 26-year-old central defender has signed a three year contract that will keep him at the club until summer 2012.

The fee is the highest ever paid by Blues for a defender and Alex McLeish has long been an admirer of the player.

Johnson began his career at Wycombe and was captain of the side before sealing a move to Cardiff for 275,000 after making 183 appearances for the Chairboys.

He told Birmingham's official website: 'I am really pleased to be here. Birmingham are a massive club and I am looking forward to putting the shirt on to be honest.

'Premier League football is the dream at the start of any footballer's career so I am pleased I have been given that chance with Birmingham and I can't wait to get started.

'The aim is to stay in the Premier League with Birmingham and hopefully I will have a big part to play in that.

'I want to do well for the club. At both clubs I have been at I have got on well with the fans and hopefully that will continue here.'
