McLeish looking to nab Gijon midfielder?

McLeish looking to nab Gijon midfielder?

Blues manager Alex McLeish is hopeful that he can get the funds to sign Sporting Gijon midfielder Michel after watching the 23-year-old in action, according to reports.

It is believed that McLeish went off to Spain at the weekend to take a good look at the player who played a big part in helping Gijon to victory in a pre-season tournament.

Blues have already spent £18million so far this summer but the gaffer is hoping that a little more cash can be released by owner David Sullivan enabling McLeish to sign the £3 million rated midfielder.

McLeish's assistant, Andy Watson says that the boss is highly impressed with the player and is hoping to get a bid in.

'The next stage is for us to say we believe he is a really good player to the people that matter at the club,' said Watson.

'Alex has to see if we can persuade the board to do something.'
